Mystery behind cop's death in Meerut takes a new turn

The controversy over Delhi Police head constable Sanjeev’s death in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut district took a new turn on Sunday after his family filed a case against two of his colleagues, who were with him when he was shot dead on May 15.

According to K Satyanarayan, senior superintendent of police, Meerut, Sanjeev’s father has lodged a complaint at Kanker Khera police station alleging that it was a case of murder conspired by constables Sachin and Vivek.

Delhi Police claims that the head constable, a resident of Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh who was posted with special staff of Delhi Police (south district), was shot dead when three unidentified miscr­eants opened fire at his team in a road rage incident near Ga­nga Nahar on Meerut bypass.

Vivek Gogia, joint commissioner of Delhi Police (south western range), had said that Sanjeev was with his team in Meerut to do recce to trace auto-lifters. However, Meerut Police’s initial probe has found that it might be a work of some hard core criminals of the area.

Sanjeev was shot at on right side of his chest, and succumbed to his injuries during treatment at Chhatrapati Shivaji Subharti Hospital. Sachin was also injured after he was shot at on his knee.
