Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - IN & AROUND -

PANCHKULA: The pros­e­cu­tion has moved an ap­pli­ca­tion in the court of ad­di­tional dis­trict and ses­sions judge Kan­chan Mahi on Tues­day for mak­ing the driver of Lud­hi­ana-based doc­tor, Dr Su­mit So­fat, an ac­cused in the fake rob­bery and shootout case of 2009. It has come out that driver Nel­son was a part of the con­spir­acy. It has been al­leged by the pros­e­cu­tion that as per the re­port of a PGI doc­tor, the in­juries suf­fered by Nel­son were sim­ple in na­ture and could not be caused by a bul­let and there was no exit wound too. The case will come up for hear­ing on March 5. On July 19, 2009, Dr So­fat com­plained to the po­lice that Ramesh Pashan and his two sons Vi­nayak and Ab­hi­nav with the help of their driver Ran­jit and two other uniden­ti­fied per­sons at­tacked him, in­jur­ing his driver Nel­son, who re­ceived two bul­lets in his chest. Dr So­fat also al­leged that the Pashan fam­ily had robbed Rs 33 lakh from his ve­hi­cle. When the Panchkula po­lice con­ducted in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the in­ci­dent, they reg­is­tered a case on Au­gust 8, 2009 against Dr So­fat for plan­ning the in­ci­dent to fix Pashan and his two sons in a crim­i­nal case. So­fat had a dis­pute with Pashans over a piece of land since 2005. The Pashans pro­duced pho­to­graphs and a CD show­ing them present at the ring cer­e­mony of their son Vi­nayak at the time of the in­ci­dent.
