Shoot my son dead, or let me do it, killer constable’s father tells police

Days after the parents of the girl with whom he eloped vowed to slaughter her in public, the father of suspended Chandigarh Police Constable Basant Kumar Saturday said his son should be shot dead "as a stray dog should be killed before it bites more people."

"Basant should be shot dead and must be punished for the gory crimes he is committing. He has become an animal like a stray dog and should be killed before it bites more people," Basant's father, Rajbir Singh, a farmer based in Garor village under Sonepat district in Haryana, said while talking to the Indian Express.

He was reacting to the reports about his on-the-run son allegedly killing Chandigarh Police Inspector Sucha Singh, hurting another policeman before escaping in their vehicle. Rajbir has been absconding Since April 18, the day he allegedly shot dead two persons and critically injured another before eloping with his girlfriend Sarita from Sonepat. Among the dead were Sarita's husband Sandeep, with whom she had got married only three days ago, and her mother-in-law.

Rajbir sought to put the blame on Sarita for his son going berserk.

"This girl (Sarita) has destroyed his thinking abilities and transformed him from a decent young man into a dreaded criminal. Ever since he first eloped with her in February, the community has socially boycotted our family. We bought him and after huge efforts he landed a job with the Chandigarh Police. But his career is finished because of this girl," Rajbir said.

The farmer said that Basant has not only ruined his own life but "also left us with no other option but to commit suicide."

Rajbir said his wife is in shock ever since she she heard that Basant has committed another murder. "The Kharkhoda police officials came to us and enquired about Basant. We do not have any contact with him ever since he eloped. He (Basant) does not not deserve to live. If the police can not kill him, he should be handed over to me, I will shoot him dead in front of the entire village and redeem my family's honour," he added.
