The residents of Bond Kalan village in Bhiwani, where two brothers were allegedly shot dead by notorious criminal Kolbir on Wednesday night, held a panchayat meeting on Saturday and gave Haryana Police till November 20 to arrest the accused or face consequences.
Kolbir had shot dead two brothers, Kuldeep and Rajender, when they refused to succumb to his extortion demand of food grains.
Puran Chand, former Sarpanch of the village, said: "The police had sought time from us till today morning, but failed to arrest Kolbir. Now, the senior police officers again requested us that we should give them more time. We have set a deadline of November 20. On that day we will hold a maha panchayat of over 42 village khaps and decide the future course of action."
For the time being, villagers have also decided to revive the decades' old "thikri paira" (turn by turn watch during the night hours) in the village. "A group of five persons including four villagers and one armed policeman will be on patrolling duty every night," Puran Chand added.
