Plot to kill key witness hatched inside jail: Cops

Tribune News Service
Ambala, June 15

The suspects who were arrested in connection with the killing of EASI Suresh Kumar have revealed that the conspiracy to eliminate Rambir, prime witness in the murder case of JBT teacher Session Kumar Judge, was hatched by accused lodged inside the Central Jail, Ambala.

EASI Suresh Kumar, who was deployed as the security person of Rambir, was killed on June 2.

The Ambala police had arrested three suspects - Prince, Rahul Kumar and Shubham - in connection with the killing of the policeman.

According to information, Sahil Rana, Kuldeep Rana and Bhuppi Rana, who are lodged in the Central Jail, Ambala, had hatched the conspiracy and they had given the task to Prince, who was also in the jail. Sahil and Kuldeep were arrested in connection with the murder case of Session Kumar Judge.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Naraingarh Amit Bhatia said: “Sahil, Kuldeep and Bhuppi Rana had hatched the conspiracy to kill Rambir from inside the jail. Prince, who killed EASI Suresh Kumar, was in the jail and he came out around two months ago. He came in contact with the three accused inside the jail and had reached Naraingarh to execute the plan.”

Rahul and Shubham had no past criminal record, while the juvenile, who was arrested earlier, knew about the plan and he ensured the safe exit of the accused.

The DSP said: “Sahil, Kuldeep and Bhuppi have been booked under sections of criminal conspiracy. They were brought out on a production warrant and taken on four-day police remand. During the remand, they have revealed about their conspiracy.”

Vijay Kumar, brother of Session Kumar Judge, said: “We have been claiming the same thing from the very first day that the accused, who are in jail in connection with my brother’s murder, had sent the assailants to kill Rambir. They have been operating from inside the jail. The accused have formed a group inside the jail. Jail officials must shift them to different jails. If they are separated, crime in Naraingarh will come down. Some accused are still roaming freely and the police must arrest them too.”

Security of Rambir has been strengthened by the police. Two security personnel have been deployed for his protection as he is now the eyewitness in the killing of Suresh Kumar too.

One suspect held

Meanwhile, the Ambala police have arrested a suspect, Pradeep, a resident of UP, in connection with the murder case of EASI Suresh Kumar. He has been arrested for harbouring the accused of the murder case. DSP Amit Bhatia said the suspect had provided shelter to the accused after the murder of Suresh Kumar. Pradeep was produced before a court which sent him to judicial custody.
