The Police on Thursday arrested two accomplices of Doon MLA Ram Kumar Chaudhary, who had been absconding for nearly two months after their involvement in the murder of 24-year old Hoshiarpur girl, Jyoti Kumari, surfaced in the case.
According to police they arrested Dharmpal and Gurmeet from Baddi in connection with the murder case. Jyoti was found murdered in Sector 21, Panckula, and her body was thrown on the road after she was strangulated and later allegedly crushed under a truck. Police have already arrested Tilak Raj, the driver who is alleged to have driven the truck over Jyoti.
Police officials said that all the three accused were produced before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM), which remanded them to five-days in police custody.
Confirming the arrest, Assistant Commissioner of police (Panchkula) Virendar Singh, said that Dharampal and Gurmeet were arrested as they had conspired with Chaudhary to carry out the murder.
As per police Jyoti Kumari was strangulated and later crushed under the truck which was allegedly driven by Tilak Raj to Udaipur in Rajasthan. The post-mortem report of Jyoti has revealed that her ribs were broken and the "skin on both sides of her face had peeled off". Besides the name of Gurmeet and Dharmpal, the name of Rajinder alias Puppy had also surfaced in the case.
Police officials meanwhile said that Chaudhary will be produced in court on Friday.
Earlier police investigations have revealed that Ram Kumar and his accomplices, Gurmeet, Dharampal and Rajinder alias Puppy were in the same area in sector 21 during the time of murder. Their cell-phones were tracked to the area, police said.
Petrol pump owners directed to install CCTVs
The police have issued directions to petrol pump owners and managers to install closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras in and around their petrol pumps. Deputy Commissioner of Police Parul Kush Jain said that the quality of video recording should be such that the face of a person "once captured on camera" should be easily recognisable after the video is played out. "The CCTV camera system must store the recording of previous 15 days. There must also be at least 2-hour power back up for the system, and it should be turned on throughout the day," the police said.
