A 50-year-old man, Dhanpat Sharma, was allegedly murdered by his employers on Wednesday near Banur and his body was recovered from a car in Sector 26.
Interestingly, the Chandigarh Police registered a case of murder against the two accused, Ankit Mittal and Aseem Mittal, while for the same incident, the Punjab Police registered a case on charge of kidnapping with an intention to kill.
As per UT police officers, there was an argument between Dhanpat and brothers Ankit and Aseem regarding money that Dhanpat had taken from them and was not able to return. Following a heated exchange of words, the two brothers started beating him at the market around 5 pm.
Sharma's brother Roshan Lal said, "I called my brother at 6 pm and someone else answered the call. The person at the other end said Dhanpat had had been severely hurt after meeting with an accident. Then he disconnected the phone, saying he would tell me later which hospital I should reach."
Roshan Lal said he received many calls from the same person. Ultimately, at 7 pm, a police officer called and asked him to reach Sector 26 grain market where the Mittals were coming with his brother.
"In Sector 26, I was asked to sit in a car in which my brother was sitting. The two employers said that we will go to the hospital. But when I touched my brother and tried to talk to him, he was unconscious. Father of the two Mittals checked my brother and said there was no use going to the hospital as he was dead. He had bruises on his arms and legs, and his hands were swollen."
By this time, the Mittals had taken the car back to Banur where they tried telling Roshan Lal to reach a compromise. "The Mittals' father and the police personnel told me to take whatever amount of money I want and reach a compromise," said the brother of the deceased.
