With Ponty and Hardeep Chadha murders still shrouded in mystery, cops arrest guards
Police said the personnel who had gone to the spot had reported that they could not find anything untoward there and everything was peaceful though bullets were fired in the air when Ponty's men beat up Hardeep's staff.
However, around 40 minutes later the shooting incident took place.
Gogia did not reply to questions whether a prompt response to the first call by PCR personnel could have averted the incident.
He said PCR has informed them that it was a call about the scuffle and there was no mention about firing.
The official also did not answer a question on whether the statements of Uttarakhand Minorities Commission Chairman Sukhdev Singh Namdhari, who had gone to the spot with Ponty, and his PSO Sachin Tyagi matched.
To another question, he said they will keep talking to Namdhari as he is the informant about the incident.
"Namdhari has given us his version. We are verifying it also. It is subject to investigation," he said.
Police had said yesterday that tension was brewing between Ponty and Hardeep for a couple of days before their killing and community elders and family members were trying to sort out the issues.
