The incident had taken place on May 6.

His wife Harman Kaur said that Gurdeep worked at a tailor shop in Regal Market, Jagraon, and usually returned home by 9pm. But on May 6, as he did not come home till midnight, she went out to look for him and found him lying injured near a pond. She rushed him to the hospital, where doctors declared him dead.

Police had found his motorcycle, bearing some scratches, which led them to believe that it was an accidental death. Thus, they initiated inquest proceedings under Section 174 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. Later, after receiving the autopsy report, police registered a case under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code on the victim’s wife’s complaint.

Sub-inspector Surinder Singh, the station house officer of Jagraon city police station, said the case has been registered against unidentified persons, but police will crack the case soon.
