Gurgaon: A Panipat court has ordered a probe against a police inspector for framing innocent people in a murder case of 2020.
Additional sessions judge Amit Garg observed on Friday that inspector Ankit had “malafide intention” and tried “to change the truth”.
The court also said that Ankit, who was the SHO of Chandnibagh police station at the time of the murder, did not include CCTV footage in his report as it showed only two persons attacking the victim while the cop had mentioned several names in the chargesheet.
“The gross negligence, carelessness or malafide intention, whatever it is, on part of inspector Ankit cannot be described in words,” the judge observed.
“The court feels pain for the cause of justice when important investigation in death cases is assigned to the investigating officer like inspector Ankit who try to change the truth with their high handedness and malafide intention,” he added.
Public prosecutor Mukesh Kumar said that on September 20, 2020, police received information from a Panipat hospital that a man named Sameer had suffered grievous injuries in a scuffle. Sameer was referred to the Rohtak Medical College and Hospital, where he succumbed to the injuries.
Sonju, Sameer’s brother, had lodged a complaint against Suraj, Harish, Sonu, Rattan Lal and Narender, alleging that they attacked him with sticks over an old enmity. The accused were arrested and booked for murder.
Jitender Kundu, who represented the accused in court, said inspector Ankit had failed to identify even the house or the place where Sameer was attacked. Kundu also raised questions on the police’s decision not to include CCTV footage in the report.
The presence of CCTV cameras outside the house and the lack of footage came under the court’s notice during the hearing.
“The careful perusal of footage from CCTV cameras installed in the house of the complainant reveals that the incident did occur but not in the manner as alleged by the prosecution and complainant,” the court observed.
It also highlighted that the footage clearly showed Suraj and Harish at the crime scene, but the presence of others mentioned by the police was “highly doubtful”.
The court also expressed doubt over the statements of witnesses the police had produced.
“The prosecution and witnesses completely changed the story from the actual incident that had happened,” the judge said, while acquitting Narender, Sonu, Bharat and Rattan Lal.
Harish and Suraj were sent to jail for seven years.
