ROHTAK: Uniden­ti­fied mis­cre­ants pumped six bul­lets into a coach­ing cen­tre owner, Viren­der Singh, 35, in Rohtak’s posh DLF colony on Mon­day night. The mur­der hap­pened near Haryana co­op­er­a­tion min­is­ter Man­ish Grover’s house, rais­ing a ques­tion mark over safety of res­i­dents.

Viren­der, a res­i­dent of Khadothi vil­lage in Rohtak, was stay­ing with his wife and kids in Bhi­wani and ran a coach­ing in­sti­tute for English and skill de­vel­op­ment by name of PS Ed­u­ca­tion in Rohtak’s DLF colony.

The po­lice said Viren­der had gone to see-off his friend to the end of the street from his in­sti­tute on Mon­day night when some car­borne mis­cre­ants open fired at him and fled the spot. He was rushed to Post Grad­u­ate In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Sciences (PGIMS) where doc­tors pro­nounced him dead dur­ing treat­ment.

Viren­der’s fa­ther Bal­bir Singh said he had an on­go­ing mone­tary dis­pute with Bharat Colony res­i­dent Rahul, over which he had re­cently filed a po­lice com­plaint against Rahul at the Civil Lines po­lice sta­tion. Bal­bir said he sus­pected Rahul’s hand be­hind the in­ci­dent.

On Bal­bir’s com­plaint, the po­lice have booked Rahul un­der Sec­tion 302 (mur­der) of In­dian Pe­nal Code and sec­tions 25, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act. No ar­rest had been made till the fil­ing of this re­port.
