the three men got out of the car and began assaulting him
An Indian man was killed by his family on April 20, 2020. The victim had been released from prison and was on parole.
Police identified the victim as Gurmej Singh. He had been released from Central Jail Ambala after he was convicted of homicide.
Singh’s wife Pooja filed the police case and said that her husband was killed over an old feud.
The incident happened near Mahesh Nagar in Rajasthan.
In 2015, Singh had killed his brother Ranbir Singh over a property dispute and was jailed. On April 3, 2020, he was released on 42-day parole due to COVID-19.
Following his release, Singh lived with his family. On the day of the killing, he and his wife left their home to buy vegetables.
On their way, they were confronted by Singh’s nephew Manjinder, another relative named Sandeep and a third man inside a vehicle.
They began verbally them before running over the Indian man.
After knocking Singh over, the three men got out of the car and began assaulting him with sharp weapons.
Meanwhile, Manjinder’s mother Gurmesh Kaur, his sister Kuljinder Kaur and wife Rajni turned up at the scene and began beating Singh.
Pooja tried to help her husband but she was also assaulted.
The attack stopped when Singh’s father Baljit Singh and Pooja’s nephew Randeep intervened. At the same time, Pooja alerted the locals to help.
When the locals began rushing to help, the suspects fled in a nearby vehicle.
Pooja, who suffered minor injuries, explained that her husband was taken to a nearby medical clinic where he was later transferred to GMCH-32 in Chandigarh.
At the hospital, Singh died of his injuries.
Pooja explained to police what had happened and a case was registered under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
A case was registered Manjinder, Gurmesh, Kuljinder, Rajni, Sandeep and an unidentified man at Mahesh Nagar Police Station.
Superintendent of Police Abhishek Jorwal confirmed that an investigation was underway but so far, they have been unsuccessful in arresting the suspects.
Despite the police’s lack of success, two of the suspects handed themselves in on April 22, 2020. They were subsequently sent to five-days in police remand.
Manjinder and Sandeep admitted their crime but went on to say that they were the only two offenders.
Officer Aman Kumar said: “Two suspects Manjinder and Sandeep surrendered today and claimed that only they were involved in the Gurmej murder case and there was no role of the other four suspects in the case.”
