Trader killed, two booked

Bathinda, January 7

A trader in his mid-forties was allegedly done to death by two unidentified assailants near the railway station here today. Another man accompanying the victim suffered injuries in the attack. The victim Suresh Sahani was a native of Bihar.

The Station House Officer of the Government Railway Police (GRP) said the two assailants apparently used an iron rod to attack the victims and had been booked under relevant sections of the IPC. A manhunt had been launched to nab the accused.

As per the GRP, they received information about two persons having suffered injuries near the railway station. Later, members of a city-based NGO reached the spot and rushed the victims to the emergency ward of a government hospital. The police said one of the injured persons died during treatment, while the other, identified as Ajay Yadav, sustained grievous wounds. Yadav said they supplied kinnow from Punjab to West Bengal. “While waiting for a train, we came outside the railway station briefly when two unidentified persons attacked us and fled with Rs 20,000 in cash, mobile phone and a bag with clothes.” — TNS
