Nagpur: A 26-year-old goon Shaikh Imran alias Imran Katta has died under very mysterious circumstances after falling from his third floor apartment in Uppalwadi’s New MHADA Colony during a police raid on Sunday.
The local police had taken the matter very lightly without informing CP Amitesh Kumar till Imran died in the Government Medical College and Hospital on Monday.
It has also been learned that Devlapar police and some colleagues from Kapil Nagar police station went to Imran’s apartment in connection with the illegal slaughter of cows. And at the same time, the police had also taken civilian Mahesh Lambat along with them. There was no female police personnel in the private vehicle at all.
While the family members have also claimed that the police had barged into the house and thrashed Imran, forcing him to try to escape from the balcony. And during the fallout of the scuffle, the police, in their routine entry at the Kapil Nagar police station, stated that they were not entering the apartment and only intended to serve a notice.
“My husband was thrashed by the police before he tried to escape. The police barged into the room without any female personnel,” alleged Shaba, wife of Imran.
“The policemen fled from the spot after my husband fell. They did not help me in taking him to the hospital.
