4 guards of Ponty Chadha arrested


He was later identified as Ponty. Police did not comment on whether the shootout could be averted if the response to the first call made at 11.50 am was better. "The PCR was informed about a scuffle and there was no mention of a firing incident in the call," an officer said.

A team of five doctors from AIIMS visited the Chhattarpur farmhouse to verify their findings of Ponty's autopsy. They examined six bullet holes at the farmhouse with the help of senior police officer, who attempted to reconstruct the shootout.

The account of eyewitnesses will be corroborated with the CCTV footage of the farm, police said. The weapons recovered from the spot have been sent for scrutiny and autopsy reports are awaited.
