The Haryana Police on Friday arrested a resident of Baland village, Rohtak, for allegedly concocting a story to mislead the police by stating that he was shot at by two unidentified assailants with an intention to rob him. The police had then registered a case on charges of attempt to murder against two unidentified people on Karambir's complaint, and kept questioning a number of suspects for two weeks.
After Rohtak Senior Superintendent of Police Vivek Sharma suspected Karambir's version of the complaint, he got his (Karambir) injuries inspected by forensic experts, who submitted their report on Friday. The report stated that the bullet injury on Karambir's leg was self inflicted.
Karambir was arrested on Friday and questioned about the weapon used to attack himself.
On his disclosure, the police recovered the unauthorised country-made pistol from his possession. He was booked under the provisions of the Arms Act, and was produced in court from where he was sent in judicial custody.
On January 25, Karambir got himself admitted to Rohtak's Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences. Since he had sustained a gunshot injury, the doctors registered a Medico-Legal Case and informed the police.
"During interrogation, he concocted a story and told us that he was shot at by two unidentified assailants, who came on a motorbike and shot at him. The bullet had hit him in his leg. Though we registered a case, but his version was suspicious. Forensic examination of his wound revealed that the bullet was not shot at from behind, but front. He was detained for questioning, and during interrogation he spilled the beans. He told us that he possessed an illegal country-made pistol and was fiddling with it when a gunshot fired and hit him in the leg. Since he could not disclose that he possessed an illegal weapon, he concocted the story," said Ved Singh, Rohtak police's spokesperson.
