A 40-year-old dentist was beaten to death in front of his family by about a dozen people in west Delhi’s Vikaspuri area Wednesday night. Nine people, including four juveniles, have been apprehended for the murder.

The juvenile justice board sent the four juveniles to a correctional home, while the five other accused — Naseer, Amir their mother Maesar, Ameer and Gopal — were sent to Tihar jail. Naseer had earlier been arrested in a robbery case, police said.

The victim, Pankaj Narang, lived with his wife and two children at New Krishna Park in Vikaspuri. Narang’s sister, brother-in-law and their son were visiting the family.

“The incident took place Wednesday night, when Narang’s son Aditya was playing cricket with his cousin Rachit outside their home. Narang and his brother-in-law Vivek Sethi were also outside, watching them play,” said a police officer.

“Two men on a motorcycle were passing by; they were driving rashly. They had to stop the motorcycle after Aditya ran out in front of it. This led to a heated argument, after which the duo left the motorcycle at the spot and escaped,” said the officer.

Police said Narang allegedly slapped the rider, Naseer, who lives in a nearby slum. He reportedly refused to let the duo take their motorcyle and asked them to call their parents.

Naseer and the other person on the bike, a minor, left the spot. But they soon returned with a group of 10 people, armed with cricket bats, sticks and rods, said a police officer.

“They attacked Narang with the bats and rods, and assaulted any family member who tried to come to his rescue. They also beat up his brother-in-law. They pelted his house with stones. The mother of one of the accused instigated the violence, provoking her son to beat up the doctor,” said the officer.

Narang’s wife and sister kept on screaming for help, but none of the local residents came forward to help, said police.
At 12.45 am, some residents informed police about the incident. By the time police reached the spot, the accused had fled.

“Both Narang and Sethi were taken to a nearby hospital. They were referred to Mata Chanan Devi Hospital, where Narang succumbed to injuries. Doctors told police that he had received a deep wound on his cranium,” said the officer.

A day later, police arrested nine people on the basis of CCTV footage obtained from the locality. Another CCTV installed at an ATM also captured the footage but police are yet to get it because of bank holidays.

“We have registered a case of murder, attempt to murder, trespass and rioting against several persons. We apprehended eight persons Thursday evening. Four of them, including the minor who was with Naseer, turned out to be a juvenile. We have also arrested Naseer’s mother Maesar. She was visible in the CCTV footage, attacking the doctor with her son and others,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (west) Pushpendra Kumar.
The doctor’s family has also been provided security, police said.

        It is extremely sad and so unfortunate for the family that words of sympathies/prayers cannot replace what the family has lost - especially the innocent boy who has lost a doting father. The fact is now Kejriwal and his ministers will support,pander and provide solace/ free electricity and water and court fees to these Vote bank juggi dwellers ! Why cant our politicians and lawyers not take this incident seriously to start making a example of these goons-irrespective of religion and age . We need suo moto intervention of Delhi High Court to first fix the Delhi law minister and Dy. CM and hold them accountable - the family needs justice - and immediately!

          When they are not young enough to kill they are old enough to be punished. Centre must review the juvenile law.

            A great loss for nation, profession, society and family. Deepest condolences to the family of Dr. Narang. The offenders should be punished as adults in the strictest possible way. They should not live to reach adulthood ....
