Haryana ASI shot dead, cops suspect son's role
Gurugram: In a shocking incident, an Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) of Haryana Police was shot dead inside his Gurugram residence in the wee hours of Tuesday. The deceased has been identified as 46-year-old Naresh Yadav who used to live with his family in U-block of DLF Phase-3. He was posted at Faridabad. A case under section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and 25-54-59 of the illegal arms act has been registered against unknown assailants.
According to the police, the incident was reported to them at 3 am. Upon their arrival, they saw the policeman lying dead on his bed. Sources in the police said that Yadav was killed while he was sleeping and was fired at a point-blank range with the killer shooting him in the head. A country-made gun is believed to have been used for carrying out the crime
Shockingly, the main suspect in the crime is believed to be the victim's 22-year-old son Mohit who has been missing ever since the crime was committed. Even though there has been no official confirmation there are speculations that all was not well in the Yadav family and there were heated arguments between father and son over a pressing issue. Incidentally, Mohit had been booked earlier by the law enforcement officials for petty crimes.
"At the moment we are not pinpointing the blame on any single individual and are interrogating everyone who we believe is associated with this crime. We have sent the body for post-mortem," said ACP Manish Sehegal, spokesperson Gurugram police.
This is the second such incident this year when a police official has died under mysterious circumstances. In March this year, Inspector Kuldeep Dahiya shot himself at the restroom in Sadar police station.
