Nalagarh shootout: Book cop, demands family

Tribune News Service

Solan, September 12

Demanding registration of a case of murder against the policeman who had fired at Kamal Kant, alias Sagar, who was killed in a police shootout while fleeing from the Deerowal inter-state barrier in the Nalagarh sub-division after an unsuccessful bid to loot an ATM on September 2, his father today said his son was killed for no fault of his.

His father Mitar Dev, who met SP Baddi along with his other family members today, gave a written complaint to the SP demanding registration of a case of murder against the policeman.

SP Baddi, Rahul Nath, said they would seek legal opinion and proceed as per the law and an FIR would be registered against the policeman.

The post mortem report of the deceased was yet to be received and it was still not certain whether Sagar had received any bullet injuries or had died due to fatal head injuries after his vehicle had hit an electricity pole following firing by the police.

Sagar was a national level badminton player who had represented the state twice at the national level though he had a case of theft registered against him in Mandi. He along with his four accomplices had tried to run over the policemen at Deerowal inter-state barrier when a policeman fired at their vehicle and he was killed on the spot. He hailed from Darbathu village in Balh tehsil of Mandi district.

While a judicial probe has already been sought by the SP, the tehsildar Nalagarh was also conducting an executive inquiry into the incident.

A team of Mandi police also visited Nalagarh today to inquire into the involvement of accused Sunil, alias Sonu, who was arrested by the Nalagarh police. Nine cases of theft are already registered against him in Mandi district.
