Sharat K Verma, The Hush Post, Jagraon: With the arrest of a serving constable of Punjab Police, the Ludhiana (Rural) Police (Jagraon Police) on Monday claimed to have solved the mysterious death of the son of a station house officer (SHO) within 48 hours. The police said the cause of the death was a case of drug abuse.
The arrested constable has been identified as Davinder Singh (28) who was posted at Kapurthala Kotwali. Davinder Singh hails from Baja Khana in Faridkot district and has a minor daughter. He has been arrested, said Ludhiana Rural SSP Surjeet Singh said on Monday.
SSP Singh said that Davinder Singh has been booked in a murder case under section 302, 328 read with section 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The FIR had been registered on Saturday when the body of 24-year-old Jeevanjot Singh alias Gavy was found from his car under mysterious circumstances near Hissowal village on the Mullanpur-Sadhar road.
SSP Surjeet Singh said that deceased Jeevanjot alias Gavy was the elder son of an SHO Gurmeet Singh posted at a Ludhiana police station. Jeevanjot had met constable Davinder Singh when both were under treatment at a de-addiction centre in Patiala.
The SSP said in his preliminary questioning, the arrested constable Davinder Singh had revealed that he and Jeevanjot Singh were drug addicts and had injected the dose of Heroin mixed with water for quicker effect together in the car of the deceased somewhere in Moga district area. Jeevanjot died in the car due to over dose.
The constable then put the dead body in the boot of the car. Then he came to Hissowal where he parked the car on the link road and then put the body on the driver’s seat and fled away.
The cops focussed on constable Davinder Singh after finding his address on the basis of the call details of the deceased whose mobile phone was found in switch-off mode around 10 pm on the fateful day. The arrested constable will be produced before the court on Tuesday, the SSP said.
Ludhiana Rural (Jagraon) SSP Surjeet Singh himself had led the investigation under his personal supervision and the police were able to solve the case within less than expected time.
