Property dealer beaten to death in Dera Bassi
The police have booked seven persons, including a mandal president of BJP, on charges of murder, on the complaint of the deceased’s brother. While people rounded up a few persons for questioning, the hunt for the others is on.
The family members and city residents refused to cremate the dead body and demanded that the police arrest the main accused. They raised their demand by blocking the Chandigarh-Ambala National Highway on Friday and raised slogans against the police and the Administration.
Later, the protestors placed the dead body of Rajesh (Bittu) in the middle of the highway and continued the protest.
It was in the evening that SP Headquarters DS Mann along with Duty Magistrate cum Tehsildar Mandeep Singh Dhillon and ADC JS Sabharwal managed to convince the family to cremate the body.
Talking to Newsline, SP Anil Sharma said that Rajesh Kumar’s brother Ramesh Kumar, resident of street no 6 of ward no 1, Dera Bassi, in his complaint, said that his brother Rajesh came to his departmental store at around 8:30 pm on Thursday to discuss the court cases against him, because he had a hearing in court next day. After the discussion, Rajesh walked away towards his home.
However, after some time, neighbours told Ramesh that his brother was lying in an injured condition in street number 6.
