In his complaint to the police, deceased sarpanch’s elder brother Balwant Singh said that his brother Sanjay was returning home after attending a wedding function at a nearby village and when his car reached near former sarpanch Mahabir’s house, three to four unknown assailants fired shots at him.

“He received injuries in stomach and shoulder. We rushed him to a private hospital in Hisar, where doctors declared him brought dead. The incident was planned by former sarpanch Mahabir’s son Karan and his other associates. They had attacked my brother in March last year also and police had booked 36 persons, including nine women,” the complainant added.

According to police, Sanjay’s son had fired shots at former sarpanch Mahabir’s son Karan last year and Sanjay’s son Punit is lodged in a jail in an attempt to murder case.

Sub-inspector Rajbir Singh said that they have booked 11 persons by name, including former sarpanch Mahabir’s son Karan and three to four unknown persons.

“We are checking CCTV footage of the incident and investigating the case from every angle. The accused were booked under sections 147, 148, 149, 120-B, 341, 302 (murder) of the IPC and sections 25, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act.
