By 10th June 2017 0 Comments


Vinod Kumar, a “habitual offender” lynched by a suspected angry mob on suspicion of supplying drugs at Bhagi Wander village on Thursday, was released on bail just five days ago.

Vinod, alias Monu Arora, faced two cases of drug peddling after recovery of 5 grams of heroin from his possession on March 3 last year and 250-gram narcotic powder on March 22 this year. He also faced three other cases, one each for rape, theft and under the Excise Act.

Countering the allegation of Bhagi Wander village residents that cops had not acted against Vinod, superintendent of police (SP, headquarters) Bhupinder Singh said the victim was released on bail on May 8, but being a habitual offender he was rearrested, and later released on June 3.Meanwhile, the police handed over Vinod’s body to his family after the postmortem at Guru Gobind Singh Medical College and Hospital in Faridkot, where he succumbed to injuries on Thursday evening.

The victim’s sister-in-law Khushpreet Kaur alleged he was picked by Bhagi Wander village sarpanch’s son from their house in Talwandi Sabo and taken to the village where he was murdered.
