Sector 40, Chandigarh murder case: Accused’s bail plea rejected

Chandigarh, September 11

A local court has rejected the bail plea of an accused in a murder case.

The accused, Harpreet Singh Laddi, had allegedly attacked Amit Katoch (27) with a soft drink bottle at the Sector 40 Mini-Market on June 28, 2019. Later, Katoch had succumbed to his injuries.

Laddi was arrested after a complaint was lodged by Sumit Katoch, brother of the deceased, a resident of Sunny Enclave, Kharar. Sumit Katoch told the police that he got a call from a friend of Amit from the PGI around 12.30 pm on June 28, 2019, that one Rajat Tiwari and some of his accomplices had attacked his brother with swords and knife in the market of Sector 40-A where Amit had gone to meet some friends.

A case against the accused was registered under Sections 302, 147, 148, 149 and 34 of the IPC at the Sector 39 police station.

Sumit alleged that a few months ago, his brother and accused Rajat Tiwari had entered into a scuffle. That's why, his brother was attacked.

The counsel for the accused claimed that the accused was neither named in the FIR nor in inquest report.

The public prosecutor said the accused had hit the victim's head with the bottle and the incident was recorded in a CCTV camera.

After hearing the arguments, the court denied bail to the accused. — TNS
