DCP on leave, Untkhana shooters still at large, 3 booked for firing on cops at Jagnade square

Nagpur News: Imambada police is still groping in the dark regarding the two bike riders who shot a youth Roshan Gyaneshwar Samreet, 23, dead over opposing eve-teasing of the girl who happens to be his friend. Meanwhile, Nandanvan police have registered case against three accused in a separate incident of firing on patroling police team. After the two back to back incidents, the cops are on their heels and have launched massive blockades at various sensitive points in Nagpur.

DCP Zone-IV, Meena under whose charge the area falls has gone on a leave for a full fortnight.

Talking to Nagpur Today over phone, Meena said that he would not be able to comment on the course of action as he is on leave. When asked that the additional charge of traffic upon him has accumulated extra work load on him, he denied any such reason behind the rising crime under his areas. He said, “the perpetrators of such crimes come from different zones and hence such crimes could not be linked to any particular zone.”

Roshan, an engineering student, was shot dead by two assailants who were riding pulsar bike on Wednesday evening. It is learnt that Roshan was called up on the spot by his girlfriend who informed him that two goons were following her on a bike and forcing her to lend her mobile number. When Roshan rushed to intervene, he got into heated verbal exchange with the duo. Raged over the objection, one of them shot Roshan and both fled the scene. Roshan fell and lied in a pool of blood. He was admitted to Medical hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. Imambada police have registered the murder case on the complaint of Roshan’s cousin Sumit Bele. The assailants were still beyond the trace.
