The Mittals drove back to their shop at Sector 26 grain market at 8 pm, and again there was an argument about compromise. "I called all my relatives in Chandigarh," added Roshan Lal.
Rajesh Sharma, brother-in-law of the deceased, said, "I called the police control room at 1.30 am, and the police officers reached the spot at 1.45 am. The two accused, Ankit and Aseem, had fled by then and after the police went through their formalities, we brought Dhanpat's corpse to GMSH-16."
Lucky Sharma, cousin of the deceased, said, "We have been sitting here since three in the morning waiting for post-mortem to be done as we have to take the body to Himachal."
Dhanpat had been working as an accountant with the Mittals for the last 10 years. Hailing from Hamirpur, he is survived by three daughters aged 23, 21 and 10 and a son aged 12. He had been living in Chandigarh alone.
Disagreement leads to delay in post-mortem
Due to disagreement between the Punjab Police and Chandigarh Police, the post-mortem was delayed by two hours. After the UT Police officers arranged a team of forensic experts from GMCH-32 and GMSH-16, the Punjab Police officers reached the hospital. One of the Punjab Police officers said, "We have registered a case of abduction with a motive to kill and so the post-mortem should be held in Rajpura." However, a family member of the victim said, "The two police forces have been harassing us. We just want the body of our brother and go to Hamirpur. The whole family is grieving there and waiting for the body." Ultimately, the post-mortem was conducted in GMSH-16.
