Nawanshahr, May 26
The district police today claimed that the gang that killed former scribe Sunpreet Singh Mangat had executed another murder.
SSP Alka Meena said on the night of March 21, a man identified as Jasvir Singh of Siana village (Balachaur) was found dead along the roadside on the Rahon-Jadla road. He was a preacher and was on the way back to his village after performing his duty of Akhand Path at Sultanpur village near Rahon.
She said during the police remand of the suspects, they revealed that they had also murdered a man on the night of March 21, when he confronted them during snatching of cash and other valuables. They killed him on the spot and did not take his scooter or mobile phone. They used a dagger during both crimes and wounds were made to look like that of a mishap.
The SSP said in both cases, the first impression was of an accident but after getting the autopsy reports, it became known that wounds were like stabbing. The mystery behind the two cases was cleared with the recovery of the dagger from Jagdeep Singh, alias Babbu Bajwa.
Alka Meena said the first murder of Jasvir Singh was committed by Jagdeep and Harsh with the help of their two minor accomplices.
On confession of both suspects, when the medical report of Jasvir was procured from the Health Department yesterday, it was found that it mentioned that there were six stabs (three on chest, two on head and one on hand) as was in the case of Sunpreet whose body had 14 stabs.
She said the gang of teenagers and youngsters up to the age of 24, was working on a modus operandi of not taking other items other than cash or valuables as revealed by its members. She said the gang was operative in Ropar and Jalandhar districts, besides Nawanshahr. Both minors were produced in the Juvenile Court and sent to Observation Home by the court. — TNS
