Today Patiala police has issued a Look out Circular (LOC) against the former congress MLA Hardial Kamboj and his son Nirbhai Singh Kamboj alias Milty as a prime accused in a suicide case done by a Rajpura resident Ramesh Kumar. Ramesh Kumar had committed suicide by consuming sulphas at local Shivaji Park on November 11,2022 and leveled serious allegation of harassment on the duo Kamboj’s.
SSP Patiala Varun Sharma has confirmed the same and said “Patiala police is already raiding the expected hideouts of the former MLA and his son and will arrest them, if they are hiding in any part of the country.”
In another setback to former congress MLA Hardial Kamboj the court has rejected his anticipatory bail.
The issuance of Look out Circular (LOC) against the former congress MLA Hardial Kamboj and his son Nirbhai Singh Kamboj alias Milty is a major setback to the Congress. It has dented the image of the party. As per available information Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is schedule to enter Punjab via Shambu border and will proceed towards Amritsar while passing through Rajpura. The party is planning to give a rousing welcome to Rahul Gandhi when he is going to enter Punjab and has asked the Hardial Kamboj to coordinate with the coordinators of the yatra for this as the area falls under his assembly constituency. He is assigned to bring large number of workers for the yatra. But, today’s development has brought setback to the party fold.
Even the party has nominated Hardial Kamboj in November last week as a member of a high-powered committee for Ludhiana municipal corporation which are scheduled to go for elections early next year.
On November 11,2022 a Rajpura resident Ramesh Kumar had committed suicide by consuming sulphas at local Shivaji Park. Before committing suicide he recorded his suicide message and leveled harassment allegations against former congress MLA Hardial Kamboj , his son Milty Kamboj, Avtar Singh a fake freedom fighter (as per Ramesh Kumar), Lovkesh Kapoor a 10th pass dental surgeon (as per Ramesh Kumar) , an advocate and on others .
After the suicide, the deceased family members asked the local police to lodge FIR against all the culprits mentioned in the suicide note of Ramesh Kumar, including former MLA Rajpura Hardial Kamboj and his son Milty Kamboj.
Later the police acceded to the demands of deceased family and booked all the accused mentioned in the suicide note of Ramesh Kumar under section 306 of IPC for ‘Abetment of suicide.’
But police fails to arrest the accused Hardial Kamoj, Nirbhai Kamboj alias Milty Kamboj after the registration of FIR against them along with others.
