Youth dies of drug overdose, couple booked

Ludhiana, April 6

The Sidhwan Bet police have booked a couple for culpable homicide after a 26-year-old man died allegedly of drug overdose.

The accused have been identified as Jelly and his wife.

Deceased’s father, a resident of Chimna village, registered a complaint with the police alleging that his son used to get chitta (drug powder) from the couple. He said the couple was warned by him not to give drugs to his son but they didn’t budge.

On April 4, his son along with his friend had left home without informing anything.

Later, his son and a friend was lying unconscious near the drain at Malsiha Bajan village. Before he could reach there, ambulance rushed his son and his friend to the civil hospital in Jagraon where the doctors declared him dead, added the deceased’s father.

The complainant alleged that his son had died due to the drugs. Investigating Officer ASI Tirath Singh said raids were on to nab the accused. — TNS
