Pa­ni­pat biz­man’s mur­der: One of ac­cused is vic­tim’s for­mer em­ployee

Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Punjab & Haryana -

KAR­NAL: A day af­ter a 63-year-old in­dus­tri­al­ist, Pramod Gupta, was shot dead at his dye­ing plant in Pa­ni­pat, the po­lice on Satur­day said the ac­cused had ear­lier given fake iden­tity to them.

They said the ac­cused have been iden­ti­fied as Ravi Ku­mar and Neeraj Ku­mar of Badaun dis­trict of Ut­tar Pradesh and they were liv­ing on a rented ac­com­mo­da­tion in Kr­ishna Colony of Pa­ni­pat.

Ear­lier, the ac­cused had told their names to the po­lice as Su­raj and Ka­mal, res­i­dents of Shah­ja­han­pur of Ut­tar Pradesh.

Pa­ni­pat DSP (head­quar­ters) Jagdeep Doon said that one of the ac­cused Ravi is an ex-worker of the fac­tory of the de­ceased and he had left the job two months ago.

He said that the rea­son be­hind the mur­der could not be as­cer­tained yet but in the pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tions, it was found that the ac­cused had the in­for­ma­tion that the de­ceased Pramod Gupta was distribut­ing the salary of em­ploy­ees and they could have come with the in­ten­tion to loot.

He said the po­lice pro­duced the ac­cused in a lo­cal court on Satur­day, which sent them on four-day po­lice re­mand. HTC
