THE LEAD­ERS HAVE SOUGHT IM­ME­DI­ATE COM­PEN­SA­TION FOR THE REL­A­TIVES AND CLO­SURE OF BARS AT BAN­QUET HALLS

JAMMU: Three per­sons were ar­rested for mur­der­ing a 59-yearold man here, a day be­fore the mar­riage of his daugh­ter, po­lice said on Fri­day.

Dilip Lan­gar, a Kash­miri mi­grant liv­ing in Jammu’s Na­grota, was stabbed to death by Shamsher Lal alias Raaku, 24, Ashish Saini alias Sethi, 25 and Jodh Singh alias Gillu at KK Re­sorts in Ud­hay­wala area of Jammu city on Wed­nes­day night, the po­lice said.

We have ar­rested the three and a mur­der case has been slapped against them at Po­lice Post Pounichak, a po­lice of­fi­cer said.

Lan­gar was mur­dered a day be­fore his daugh­ter’s mar­riage at KK Re­sorts in Ude­hy­wala area of the city on Wed­nes­day by three drunk crim­i­nals af­ter he ob­jected to their en­try where Mehndi cer­e­mony of his daugh­ter was be­ing per­formed.

Lan­gar was taken to GMC hos­pi­tal where doc­tors de­clared him dead, po­lice said.

Mean­while, All Par­ties’ Mi­grant Co­or­di­na­tion Com­mit­tee (APMCC)—a frontal or­gan­i­sa­tion of Kash­miri Pan­dits, on Fri­day con­demned bru­tal mur­der of Lan­gar and sought a spe­cial in­ves­ti­ga­tion team to bring cul­prits to book.

In a state­ment APMCC chair­man Vinod Pan­dit and na­tional spokesper­son King C Bharati while con­demn­ing the crim­i­nal act have sought im­me­di­ate con­sti­tu­tion of spe­cial in­ves­ti­ga­tion team (SIT) to probe the mo­tive be­hind the mur­der and send the crim­i­nals to jail.

The lead­ers have also sought im­me­di­ate com­pen­sa­tion to the fam­ily and clo­sure of pub­lic bars at ev­ery ban­quet hall to prevent such in­ci­dents in fu­ture.

The lead­ers said that the man­age­ment of the re­sort was equally re­spon­si­ble for the mur­der by con­tin­u­ing a pub­lic bar at the ban­quet hall and not pro­vid­ing ad­e­quate se­cu­rity to the fam­i­lies that hire their halls for mar­riages.
