Days after the parents of the girl with whom he eloped vowed to slaughter her in public,the father of suspended Chandigarh Police Constable Basant Kumar Saturday said his son should be shot dead as a stray dog should be killed before it bites more people.
Basant should be shot dead and must be punished for the gory crimes he is committing. He has become an animal like a stray dog and should be killed before it bites more people, Basants father,Rajbir Singh,a farmer based in Garor village under Sonepat district in Haryana,said while talking to the Indian Express.
He was reacting to the reports about his on-the-run son allegedly killing Chandigarh Police Inspector Sucha Singh,hurting another policeman before escaping in their vehicle. Rajbir has been absconding Since April 18,the day he allegedly shot dead two persons and critically injured another before eloping with his girlfriend Sarita from Sonepat. Among the dead were Saritas husband Sandeep,with whom she had got married only three days ago,and her mother-in-law.
Rajbir sought to put the blame on Sarita for his son going berserk.
This girl (Sarita) has destroyed his thinking abilities and transformed him from a decent young man into a dreaded criminal. Ever since he first eloped with her in February,the community has socially boycotted our family. We bought him and after huge efforts he landed a job with the Chandigarh Police. But his career is finished because of this girl, Rajbir said.
The farmer said that Basant has not only ruined his own life but also left us with no other option but to commit suicide.
Rajbir said his wife is in shock ever since she she heard that Basant has committed another murder. The Kharkhoda police officials came to us and enquired about Basant. We do not have any contact with him ever since he eloped. He (Basant) does not not deserve to live. If the police can not kill him,he should be handed over to me,I will shoot him dead in front of the entire village and redeem my familys honour, he added.
However,Saritas father,who has already announced to slaughter her if he manges to get hold of her,blamed the Hatyana Police for not being able to trace the duo.
Had Haryana Police put pressure on Basants family,they could have told him about his whereabouts. Now that he has murdered a Police Inspector,they are again asking us about his whereabouts. How can we give them his details? My daughter is already dead for me since February 3,when she first eloped with Basant. Her uncle got her married to Sandeep (on April 15) but I never attended the marriage. For me she is dead, her father,Rohtash,said
He reiterated his resolve of killing her. In case I get to see her,I will cut her into pieces and throw those pieces to dogs, Rohtash,said.
