Two youths were shot dead outside a restaurant on Majitha Road following a fight during a birthday party on August 18. Nine days later (on August 27), the city police nabbed three suspects including Manpreet Singh, alias Mani Dhillon, and his brother Vikram Singh, both residents of Tarn Taran Road here, besides Manpreet Singh Manu of Sultanwind village.
The police also recovered a licenced pistol along with four bullets from the possession of Mani Dhillon.
The police had booked around 10 unidentified persons for the murder on the basis of a CCTV grab of the incident, which had gone viral on social media a day after the incident.
Deceased Munish Sharma and his friend Vikramjit Singh were shot dead by the accused following a dispute over a minor altercation over rubbing cake on the face.
Munish’s brother and complainant Pardeep Kumar had told the police that his brother along with Vikramjit Singh and Taranpreet Singh of Daburji village were going to a hotel located near the Ghala Mala Chowk on Majitha Road to attend a birthday party. He also invited him to come.
Sunil Arora, national president of Hindu Satkar Committee, along with family members of the deceased appeared before the Police Commissioner Vikram Jeet Duggal on Monday. They alleged that the police did not register an FIR on the basis of the actual statement given at that time. They said the police did not incorporate the names of Tarunpreet Singh, Saurav and Joban in the FIR even as their names were given in the statement at that time.
Simran, brother of deceased Vikramjit Singh, said before his death, Vikramjit told him that he had named the above three persons as accused. They were held and later let off by the police under some “pressure”.
They alleged that both Manish and Vikramjit were invited to the party under a conspiracy to avenge a dispute that had occurred around three months ago.
Sunil Arora threatened to launch agitation in the case if the police failed to incorporate the names of the three suspects. Police Commissioner said investigations would be held to ascertain the facts.
