Meerut Muslim BSP’s son gouges eyes, butchers, hacks 3 to death: Family shows no remorse
May 30, 2008, BSP leader’s son hacks 3 to death, gouges out eyes, shoots them for objecting to his stalking ex-Armyman’s daughter
The ghastly killing of three youth, reportedly by the son of a Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) functionary, has the western UP nerve centre of Meerut in the clutch of tension. The incident, in which the youth were slaughtered for objecting to the BSP leader’s son stalking the daughter of an Army officer, took place on May 22. A complete bandh was observed in Meerut on Thursday following the confessional statement of Haji Izlal
, son of Haji Iqbal and Zubeda, who had unsuccessfully contested the last mayoral election.
Izlal is said to have confessed that he called the three youth to his residence, where he butchered them and got the pieces of their bodies thrown into a vehicle
near the Hindon at Baleni, in Baghpat district. He said that Punit Giri, a nephew of Delhi Police inspector Girish Giri, Sunil Dhaka, brother of constable Anil Dhaka, and Sudhir Ujjwal were picked up from Victoria Park swimming pool by Izlal’s driver, Mannu Punjabi, and taken to his densely populated Gudri Bazar residence.
Mannu left the three youth at Izlal’s mercy at Gudri Bazar, dominated by members of Izlal’s community. It is alleged that the BSP leader’s son then chopped off their heads, gouged out the eyes and later shot them in public view.
After this brutal display of “power”, the bodies were dumped into a vehicle which was abandoned near the Hindon. The resident of Baleni saw the abandoned vehicle the following day and opened its doors to find the bodies inside. The local police were informed and an investigation launched. The vehicle was traced to Izlal, who has since been arrested.
Raj Kumar Sangwan, an RLD leader, said, “Izlal’s mother Zubeda had contested the mayoral election on a Bahujan Samaj Party ticket, but lost to Madhu Gurjar. Izlal was also aspiring for a BSP ticket for the Assembly elections. With the BSP coming to power in the State, Izlal had turned arrogant and stalked the daughter of a retired Army officer.” He added, “The boys objected to Izlal’s advances towards the girl and he got angry with them. He got the boys picked up and butchered them to death. The lawyers at Baghpat thrashed Izlal in court when he was being produced there.”
Senior Superintendent of Police (Meerut) Alok Singh said, “We have arrested main accused Izlal and recovered a US-made Smith & Wesson pistol, two mobile phones and the car’s papers from his possession. We have arrested him under the NSA and Gangster Act. The Baghpat police had been conducting the investigation but the case has now being transferred to Meerut. ASP RK Bhardwaj has been appointed the investigation officer, along with a team of competent inspectors and sub inspectors.”
Meanwhile, Thursday’s bandh call was given by all the political parties, except the ruling BSP, and it was largely successful. The city is still in a state of shock after Haji Izlal’s confessional statement.
Meerut protests triple murders
S Raju, Hindustan Times, Meerut, May 28, 2008
The brutal murder of three youngsters in full public view last week has angered residents of the city. Students, political leaders and the common man took to the streets, raising their voices for the immediate arrest of all the accused and to book them under national Security Act (NSA).
On the night of May 23, a BSP leader and his aides allegedly kidnapped Punit, Sunil and Sudhir from the Victoria park swimming pool and took them to the densely populated Gudri Bazar locality. The trio were then thrashed and left there to die, after their throats were slit. After that, their bodies were reported placed in a Maruti Esteem car and dumped near Baleni village in Baghpat district.
Sunil and Sudhir were students, while Punit was working as a railway contractor. They were reportedly close to an army officer’s daughter. The BSP leader, Ejlal, developed a passion for the same girl and reportedly decided to eliminate his rivals.
Activists and leaders of the Meerut Bachao Morcha called for a Bandh on Thursday to protest the brutal act of the BSP leader and his aides. The parental body of traders, Sanyukt Vyapar Sangh, has extended its support to the bandh.
“No one has made such a big mockery of law and order earlier. They killed three innocent youngsters like animals in a public place and many accused are still at large,” said Bijendra Aggarwal, president of the association expressing his dismay over the delay in the arrests. “All shops, petrol pumps, gas agencies and other organisations would be closed during bandh,” he declared. Referring to it as the height of brutality, BJP MLA Satyaprakash Aggarwal accused the police officials of succumbing to pressure from the ruling BSP party.Meerut killer family shows no remorse
