Ramesh Singh, a resident of Uttarakhand, who worked as a waiter, was allegedly killed by two unidentified robbers on late Monday night.

Ramesh was heading back to his rented accommodation at Jagdambe Colony, when the incident took place. The accused decamped with his jacket and cash.

The CCTV cameras are being analysed to find the clues about the perpetrators. We are working on different theories, besides the robbery angle into the murder. A case has been registered in this regard. Sarabjit Singh, Assistant Commissioner of Police (North)

Family members of the deceased on Tuesday held a demonstration outside Sadar police station as cops delayed registering an FIR.

The aggrieved family alleged that employees travelling during late night hours become an easy target of unscrupulous elements. They said the police have failed to curb snatchings and robberies.

Pritam Singh, a relative of the deceased, said earlier too miscreants had robbed Ramesh. Yesterday, he was attacked and murdered with sharp-edged weapons.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (North) Sarabjit Singh reached the spot and pacified the agitators. He said the accused would be arrested at the earliest and investigation was under way.

“The CCTV cameras are being analysed to find the clues about the perpetrators. We are working on different theories, besides the robbery angle into the murder,” said the Assistant Commissioner of Police. He added that a case has been registered in this regard.

An eyewitness told the police that she came out of her house on hearing screams of Ramesh. She said she saw two persons escaping away from the spot after taking the jacket and cash of the deceased. She said she could not see the faces of the accused due to darkness in the area.
