Yamunanagar, July 24

A mining contractor has been booked on the charge of attempt to murder after he allegedly opened fire on his business partner here on July 20.

On the complaint by Manoj Wadhwa of Karnal, a case was registered against Inderpal Singh of Yamunanagar under Sections 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 149 (unlawful assembly), 307 (attempt to murder), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC, and the Arms Act at the City police station here on Thursday. In his complaint, Wadhwa said that on July 20, Inderpal, along with eight to 10 persons, came to his office here and demanded Rs 20 lakh from the amount collected as royalty fee of mining material.

He told him that he couldn’t give him the money without consulting with other mining contractors. “He got angry and started abusing me. He and those with him manhandled me. He also opened fire on me but, luckily, I escaped,” the complainant said, adding Rs 20 lakh was missing from the office. — TNS
