IE, Dec 5

An Assistant Sub Inspector of police was shot dead in public on Wednesday by a leader of the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) when he asked him to stop harassing his daughter, police said.

The police and eyewitnesses said Ranjit Singh Rana, who is the SAD general secretary from Amritsar Urban, first shot at ASI Ravinderpal Singh’s legs from his revolver after a confrontation in Chheharta area of the city and when he ran out of bullets he drove back home, about five minutes away, challenging the police officer that he would be back. He returned soon after with a rifle and shot Singh from point blank range.

The Chheharta police station is located close to the place where the firing took place but eyewitnesses said police did not arrive at the spot till Singh was shot dead. The incident took place around 3.30 pm and lasted for more than 20 minutes.

Commissioner of Police Ram Singh said the Chheharta SHO was placed on suspension. He said a murder case had been registered against Rana and an unknown person, who drove the black SUV in which he came.

The police said the ASI’s daughter, who worked in a bank, had complained to her father that Rana had been stalking her for past several days and made unwanted advances. “Today she called her father, saying that she was again being chased by the accused. When her father arrived on Chheharta road, firing took place after a scuffle,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Kaustubh Sharma. He said further investigation was on.

ASI Singh, who was attached to Gharinda police station, came in his uniform along with his two gunmen. Eyewitnesses said the gunmen fled when the firing started.

An eyewitness, who did not want to be named, said, “The man who fired the shots was stopped by the ASI as he and two others came in a black vehicle. The ASI told the man to stop following his daughter. This led to a scuffle and both the ASI and that person started firing shots from their revolvers.”

“The ASI fired in the air but the other man fired at his legs. After the bullets ran out, they started fighting physically while people tried to separate them. The accused left the place warning that he would be back. As the ASI’s relatives, who had a shop nearby, were about to take him to a hospital in a car, the accused returned and started firing. When the ASI stepped out of the car, he was shot dead from point blank range,” he said.

Another eyewitness, Avtar Singh, said, “The accused also tried to fire towards the ASI’s daughter but his gun got jammed. He fled when people started pelting stones at him.” SAD Amritsar (Urban) president Upkar Singh Sandhu said Rana had been made SAD general secretary in September this year.
The Supreme Court recently took a zero-tolerance stance on eve-teasing and instructed all states to take measures to protect women, such as deploying women police officers in plainclothes, putting up closed-circuit cameras and setting up helplines.

    this is what you get when you don’t have professional force and police becomes too much politicised and SHOs and other officers are being posted not on professional competence but how close they are and how well they follow orders of political bosses
