Jalandhar, June 21

Four men have been booked for the murder of a 22-year-old man at Begowal in Kapurthala. Mukul, a resident of Ward Number 9, Charhdi Patti, Begowal, was shot dead on Friday night. Four persons, two of them real brothers, have been booked for the murder of the youth who was apparently killed in an act of revenge. In a statement to the police, the deceased’s father said three men — Mangal, Shera and Lovely — came to their house on the night of June 18. When asked about his son, the deceased’s father Ashok Kumar told them he had gone to play in the ground. He said the men returned but shortly afterwards he got to know that some shots had been fired in that direction.

He said upon reaching the ground, his son was found to be shot and writhing in pain. While the 22-year-old was taken to a private hospital from where he was referred to Jalandhar. The youth died on the way.

Ashok Kumar said his injured son told him that Prince, a resident of Jabbowal, along with his brother Mangal (Mangal had been caught for selling drugs five momths ago) suspected Mukul was behind his arrest. Ashok said his son told him he was hence targeted for revenge. A case has been registered under the NDPS Act at the Begowal police station. While Prince is currently abroad, the police is on the lookout for remaining three persons.

SHO, Begowal, Raman Kamar said, “Five months ago, Mangal was nabbed in a durg case and they suspected Mukul behind it. The boys were also involved in dsoutes and had made videos of one party beating each other up. Amidst these disputes, the 22-year-old boy was shot by the other group. We are on the lookout for the accused.”
