With the arrest of the accused, the police on Monday claimed to have solved the case of the brutal murder of a 34-year-old man, posted as Agricultural Extension Officer (AEO) in the Agriculture Department in Mukerian. The crime was committed on late Saturday night. The victim’s blood-soaked body was found from a deserted place late at night.

Giving information related to the arrest, DSP Gurpreet Singh said a police party, led by SHO Karnail Singh, after getting information on the phone from the control room, Chandigarh, reached Kalamanjh Kothi in Ward No.1 and found a blood-soaked body lying there. There were marks of wounds and injuries of sharp-edged weapons on the body.

The deceased was identified as Amandeep Dadwal (34), son of Sukhdarshan Singh, a resident of Shastri Colony (Mukerian). After the identification of the body, a case was registered on the basis of the statement of the victim’s father against Ashutosh, a resident of Kalamanjh, Colonel di Kothi.

The DSP said during the investigation, it came out that the accused earlier worked at a medicine shop where Amandeep used to come in the evening. He had caught him stealing and got him expelled from the job. Later, he joined as a worker somewhere else, but Amandeep got him expelled from there too. Owing to his being expelled from two jobs, Ashutosh called him on Saturday on the pretext of a party and killed him with a sharp-edged weapon. The police have recovered the ‘daatar’ (a sharp-edged weapon) used in the crime and the blood-drenched clothes of the accused which he was wearing at the time of the incident.
