Amritsar: As per media reports the court of Additional Sessions Judge Jagmohan Singh on Thursday framed murder charges against nine policemen in the encounter of SAD leader Mukhjit Singh alias Mukha. The latter was shot dead by policemen in June 2015.
Nine policemen were booked for culpable homicide not amounting to murder in 2016 after the killing of Mukha as the police claimed it to be a case of mistaken identity.
Unsatisfied by this, family members of the deceased had filed a complaint in the local court demanding registration of a murder case against the policemen as they alleged it was a planned murder and not a case of mistaken identity.
Among those who would be tried in the court for murder are Sub-Inspector Ramesh Kumar, ASI Joginder Singh, Head Constables Rajesh Kumar, Jasbir Singh, Sandeep Kumar, Ranbir Singh, Raj Kumar and Constables Navjot Singh and Satinder Singh
Senior advocate Puneet Zakhmi confirmed the development while adding that the court had fixed April 12 as the next date of hearing.
