In a shocking incident, Charanjit Singh, a UK-based Non-Resident Indian (NRI) who had recently arrived in the city, was discovered dead outside his fourth-floor flat in BDA Colony near Jalandhar bypass on Sunday night. The circumstances surrounding his death have raised questions and prompted an ongoing investigation by local authorities.
The tragic event unfolded after a minor altercation between Singh and his third-floor neighbors, leading to him collapsing and losing consciousness. Concerned neighbors rushed him to a nearby hospital, where he was declared brought dead by medical professionals.
In a bizarre turn of events, the neighbors reportedly fled from the hospital, possibly out of fear for potential consequences.
Allegations surfaced that Singh was pushed from his fourth-floor apartment during the scuffle, resulting in fatal injuries. However, local police have dismissed these claims as baseless rumors and warned of strict action against those spreading misinformation.
Pradeep Singh, Station House Officer (SHO) at Division No. 8 police station, confirmed a minor verbal spat between Singh and his neighbors, suggesting that the victim was a heart patient. The SHO mentioned that Singh’s cause of death, suspected to be a heart attack, could only be confirmed after the receipt of the post-mortem report.
Contrary to speculations, the police stated that there were no visible injury marks on the deceased’s body, refuting assertions that he was pushed from the fourth floor.
In response to a complaint from the deceased’s relatives, four individuals have been booked in connection with the incident, and an ongoing investigation is underway. As of now, no arrests have been made.
The community awaits further details from the authorities as they seek to unravel the mystery behind Charanjit Singh’s untimely demise, and concerns linger over the conflicting narratives surrounding the tragic event.
