Judicial magistrate Geetika Jyoti on Wednesday sent the four accused in the Jamalpur shooting case to one-day police remand.
The public prosecutor demanded a 10-day remand for the accused, who were brought to the court in the afternoon under high security. The public prosecutor said the special investigation team (SIT) needed a 10-day remand of the accused to reach the truth.
However, Amit Tandon, counsel of SAD leader Gurjit Singh, who allegedly shot dead brothers Harinder Singh (23) and Jatinder Singh (25), along with three suspended constables of Machhiwara police, said in the court that the remand on Sunday was granted to recover the weapon and a .32 bore pistol had already been recovered, so there was no need for further remand.
The accused will be again produced in the court on Thursday.
Police commissioner Pramod Ban, who heads the SIT, visited the crime spot at Jamalpur. Simran Kaur, who owns the house at Jamalpur where the brothers were living as paying guests, was present during the investigation. The police also conducted a videography of the crime spot and recorded the statement of the locals.
AAP demands Sukhbir’s resignation
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has alleged that the brothers who were killed in “cold blood” were workers of the AAP during the last parliamentary polls. The AAP members, who protested at the mini-secretariat, alleged that Gurjit wanted to avenge this and killed the two.
The members demanded the immediate resignation by deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, who is also the home minister of the state.
