Kabaddi player shot dead; murder caught on CCTV camera

In broad daylight, a national-level Kabaddi player, Sukhvinder Singh Narwal (24), was shot dead in Rohtak in Haryana by unidentified suspects who pumped in at least 5 bullets into his body on Tuesday evening.

The incident was caught on CCTV camera installed near the house of the deceased player.

The two assailants rode a two-wheeler close to Singh as he was walking his way to his house after a Kabaddi practice session. The pillion opened fire hitting Singh in the chest. As Singh fell down, the two got down and fired several bullets, including one in his head.

Several youth, including his brother Sunil, who were playing in a sports club just 100-meters away from the murder site, rushed after hearing gun shots. By the time they reached the spot, the two had fled.

Singh was rushed to the PGI in Rohtak, where he was declared dead. Sources said, the police have rounded up two person from another village in connection with the murder that has gone viral on the internet.

The motives of the murder are still unclear with family members, including Sunil and his father Chander Singh, saying that Singh did not have any rivalry with anyone in the village. Although not confirmed, the murder mystery has given rise to the grapevine that the deceased player may have had a dispute over money with someone or an altercation over a friendship issue.

Singh’s father Chander said he was away from the village and learnt about the murder on phone. “I cut short my trip and returned to see my dead son in the hospital”, he said. The killers did not cover their face. In December 2015, another kabaddi player Deepak Kumar alias Deepak Pehalwan was shot dead by two motorcycle-borne men in Haryana.

Sunil said he was finding it hard to suspect anyone since his brother did not have any rivalry with anyone. “He was a very simple person. He was on fast on Tuesday and he wanted to return early that day, but died of bullet injuries”, he said.

A delegation of the villagers have met Haryana DGP in Rohtak who has assured them of solving the murder mystery at the earliest.
