Kharar, February 25

The Kharar police have arrested two students in connection with the murder of Nischal, a student of Chandigarh University (CU), Gharuan, who was allegedly beaten up by a group of students and ultimately died at the PGI on February 23.

ASI Sikander Singh of the Kharar police said Nischal was studying in an agricultural course at the university and was allegedly injured in an attack by a group of students a few days ago. He was referred to the PGI from the Kharar Civil Hospital, where he died.

He said the police arrested Rohit and Sanjay, both residents of Sirsa district in Haryana, today. They would be produced in a local court on Sunday. He said at that time, the Kharar police had registered a case under Sections 323, 308, 148 and 149 of the IPC against the accused.

After Nischal’s death, the police booked them under Section 302 of the IPC (on the charge of murder). He said the other accused would also be arrested soon.
