It may be recalled here that body of constable of Kanadia police station Sandeep Singh Bais ( 35) was found on bypass on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday with a severe head injury. A mini- truck had met with an accident with another mini- truck loaded with onion on Tuesday night at 11.30 pm on Kanadia bypass. The accident left both the vehicles damaged and after the accident, driver Vinod Chauhan and Manmohansingh of one of the mini- trucks broke rear view glass of Razzak’s mini- truck. They also bashed him and cleaner Pravez. At this moment, Razzak and Parvez informed police of the accident.
The driver and cleaner of the other mini- truck also called their six accomplices, all of whom were wearing turban. They came in another mini- truck and a motorbike.
In the meanwhile, two constables of Baaz squad Vijendra Parihar and Vikas reached the spot to take stock of the situation. The deceased constable was coincidentally returning from his duty in civil dress on his motorbike and when he saw his colleagues, he too joined them at the accident spot.
When these three policemen reached the spot, the drivers and cleaners were in a fight. To deter them, deceased constable Sandeep hit one of the mini- truck drivers Vinod Chauhan with his bamboo stick. The driver feigned injury and was rushed to hospital by constables Vijendra and Vikas while the deceased constable remained at the spot.
Sandeep tried to settle down the issue but the accomplice of injured driver were not giving up and seeing the situation go out of control, truck driver Razzak and Parvez also fled the spot. In the meanwhile, Sandeep called at police station and informed that the situation is getting out of control.
Before police could reach the spot, the seven bashed up the Sandeep with iron rod and wooden stick. To avenge the beating given to their friend driver, the seven accomplices killed Sandeep. After killing him, they abandoned the body on the roadside. At this moment, an ASI reached the spot and noticed a motorbike parked there but he did not recognise it.
