A 25-YEAR-OLD Anurag Rana of Abohar, who was residing at a rented accommodation in TDI City Society, reportedly jumped to death from the eleventh floor of the building when police raided his house following a tip-off about betting on a T20 match between India and Australia. The incident happened on October 10. Alleging foul play, Anurag’s family members claimed that the youngster was pushed to death. However, police said there were four persons inside the house when they raided the place and Anurag jumped to death.
The victim’s father, Chander Parkash, said his son could not commit suicide and he alleged a conspiracy in his death. He demanded a high-level inquiry into the incident and punishment for anyone found guilty. Anurag was cremated in Abohar on Thursday.
Inspector Manjeet Singh, SHO of Balongi police station, said a case was registered under the gambling Act against Rishi, Ankush, both brothers, Shubham Chabbra and Anurag Rana. He said Anurag’s body had been handed over to his family after post-mortem on Wednesday. Police said a laptop and three cell phones were also recovered from the room of the gambling accused.
