Case registered

The Khanna police registered an abetment to suicide case against Sonu, a drug addict.

The deceased has been identified as Sukhwinder Singh (29), also a drug addict.

Sonu had sent Sukhwinder for bringing drugs but when after hours Sukhwinder didn’t bring drugs, Sonu turned angry and brutally thrashed him.

Sukhwinder’s mother Harjit Kaur told the police that on September 19, Sonu came to their house and asked about her son. “Sonu told me that my son had taken his mobile phone and a motorcycle and didn’t return. Sonu warned that he will teach my son a lesson whenever he will come back,” alleged Sukhwinder’s mother.

Yesterday when her son returned house, he was injured and he revealed that Sonu had thrashed him badly. Feeling humiliated, her son opened his bag and took out poison and consumed it, the Sukhwinder’s mother said, adding that she took her son to hospital where he underwent treatment for sometime but he couldn’t survive.

Investigation officer ASI Sukhdev Singh said after registering a case, raids are being conducted to nab the accused.

Sukhwinder’s mother said her son was also a drug addict and she got his treatment done from various places but he didn’t shun drugs. Since her husband had died in 2016, her son was her only support.
