Hang killer cabbies: Gurgaon
The killer gang may be behind bars but Gurgaon cannot stop looking over its shoulder, reports Sanjeev K Ahuja.india Updated: Nov 13, 2006 02:15 IST
The killer cabbie gang may be behind bars but Gurgaon cannot stop looking over its shoulder. Shaken residents of the city are now getting together to demand prompt justice for the 28 innocents slaughtered by the nine killers of Bhora Kala.
On Sunday morning, over 1000 people, including children and women, took out a march to demand that the case be transferred to a fast track court. “Hang them all”, read the placards they were carrying. Later, Gurgaon district magistrate RP Bhardwaj was handed over a memorandum addressed to Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
Part of the gathering was Sunil Jain, the father of 19-year-old Sachin Jain, who was allegedly killed by the gang. “Now that these criminals have been arrested, the case must be taken to its logical conclusion by ensuring arrest of all concerned criminals, identification of all recovered bodies, and meticulous and systematic approach to the investigation aimed at getting the maximum sentence for these cold-blooded murderers."
JN Mangla, the member of the Haryana Grievance Committee, said, “In the memorandum, we have demanded that the case be handed over to a fast track court to ensure that justice is neither delayed nor denied. The administration must pool all its resources to ensure exemplary punishment for these criminals so as to deter others."
Residents also blasted the police for not waking up to the murders earlier. Had the police investigated the unidentified dead bodies recovered since October, the serial killers would have been caught before, they said. "Police records show that they recovered 22 unidentified dead bodies from various places in the city. If they had investigated these incidents, a lot of victims might have been saved. We, therefore, urge the police department to handle the cases of unidentified dead bodies attentively," the memorandum read.
Victim’s belongings found DLF Police have recovered the belongings of Papa John employee Sachin Jain from the five arrested gangsters: a mobile phone, wrist watch, a cheque book, wallet and a silver ring. The killers had taken the items after killing Sachin on October 29.
Rohtash alias Langoor, Lalit alias Littar, Mukesh alias Ghassar, Pramod alias Bhuria and Ravi all from Bhora Kala were arrested by the special branch of Gurgaon police on November 6 and were on remand with the DLF police for three days.
According to Suresh Kumar, investigating officer of DLF police station, the gangsters would snatch all belongings of the dead and share the booty. "After killing Sachin, Mukesh alias Ghassar took his Nokia 2300 mobile phone, Promod took his cheque book and Ravi took the wrist watch. Around Rs 500 in cash was shared between Rohtash and Lalit," he added.
