Cops crack US Indian’s murder

Four friends of Anmol, the boy who was killed, have also been arrested, but under Sec. 27 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.

NEW DELHI: Local police sources claimed on Monday night that they had cracked the case involving the Friday night murder of a young American citizen of Indian descent in Kalkaji area of the city after a drug-fuelled party. Police sources said two security guards, Surender Bali of Madangir (46) and Naresh Mishra of Sangam Vihar (60), had been arrested under IPC Section 302 (murder).

Four “friends” of Anmol, the boy who was killed, have also been arrested, but under Sec. 27 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, the police sources claimed. The arrested friends are Pranil Shah, to whose South Park, Kalkaji house the victim had gone for a party; Shivank Ghambir, ala Chikki, a resident of Pamposh Enclave; Madhav Bhandari of GK-I and Ridham Girhotra of Govindpuri Extension. All four are in their 20s. The police is looking for the supplier of the drugs they believe were consumed that night.

However, the police did not say on what evidence they had made the arrests. Neighbours claimed earlier on Monday that Flat No. 95 (Pranil’s home), was a “drug party destination”.

The neighbours alleged that youth would come to the house on a regular basis and get high on drugs and that it was not entirely impossible that a boy was attacked by his friends when they were high on drugs and alcohol.

Anmol was a friend of only Shivank, ala Chikki, and met Madhav and Ridham at the party for the first time. Though he had met Pranil (the boy at whose house the party took place) earlier, he had never visited his house in South Park Apartment. It was Chikki who convinced him to come to Pranil’s house.

The kin of Anmol suspect that he was killed as a part of a conspiracy by Chikki and others. “Anmol had never visited Pranil’s house. Before the incident, none of us knew who Pranil was.

He had gone to Chikki’s house in Pamposh Enclave and from there they decided to go to this party. We are now suspicious, maybe our brother was killed as part of a conspiracy,” Anmol’s brother, Anuj, told MAIL TODAY.

A retired colonel living in the apartment said on condition of anonymity, “This flat is a hub of drug parties. On the night of the incident, we heard a commotion in the locality and saw the youth staggering in an inebriated condition. He was bleeding profusely and was trying to find his way out of the locality. He tried to stand against the cars parked here and finally fell to the ground. Finally a guard saw him and made a call to the PCR after which he was taken to hospital.”

He added that a forensic team that visited the site found bloodstains on 15 cars in the immediate area. The post-mortem report showed Anmol died due to deep cuts on his head. The police were working on the lines that LSD was supplied at the party and all the youth were high on the drug.

According to police sources, they found the wall of Flat No. 95 and the LCD TV inside the house broken and on the basis of this had assumed that Anmol harmed himself while on drugs. When Anmol came to Delhi, he started hanging out with Chikki who introduced him to Pranil and then to Madhav and Ridham.
