IPS officer death: Two witnesses depose in court



Indore: Two more prosecution witnesses on Thursday deposed before the Special CBI Court in the IPS officer Narendra Kumar Singh death case.

Saligram, the tractor-trolley owner who sold the tractor to accused Manoj Gurjar, and Munna Khan, the battery shop owner, appeared before the court of Justice Anupam Srivastava.

They were examined by CBI senior public prosecutor A H Khan and cross examined by Mahendra Morya, the defence counsel for Gurjar.

Munna told the court that he had asked the accused to supply stones at his house before the incident, in which Singh was allegedly killed.

However, during cross examination by the defence counsel, Munna denied that the stones were supplied at home in his presence.

CBS Raghuvanshi, the then Thana in-charge of Banmore, will depose before the court on November 9.

The court had framed charges against Gurjar under Sections 304 (culpable homicide) and 353 (use of criminal force to prevent government official from discharging his duties) of IPC and section 181 of the Motor Vehicle Act.

Gurjar is accused of mowing down Singh when the latter tried to stop the tractor-trolley loaded with illegally mined stones in Morena district of Madhya Pradesh on March 8 this year.

30-year-old Singh was posted as sub-divisional officer at Banmore at the time of the incident.
