The South Delhi’s Ambedkar Nagar police station came in the limelight on Monday, July 12 after the family of a 50-year old businessman, Yogesh Gupta, alleged foul play in the mysterious death of the businessman whose body was found on the railways tracks near Old Faridabad railway station. The family alleged that either the police killed the businessman or abetted him to end his life.
“We tried to meet him but were not allowed to. He suffered from heart ailments and when we took his medicines to the police station we were told he left the premises hours ago. They lied to us. They either killed my father or pressurised him to end his life,” said Shiva, son of deceased Yogesh Gupta, quoted by the News18 report.
When asked to the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) (South), Atul Thakur, about the incident, he claimed that Gupta was summoned by the police station on a complaint of money fraud case by one Neeraj Pahadia. Pahadia alleged that Gupta ran a finance committee and took around 12.23 lac from investors. However, Gupta closed the committee without taking permission from the investors. Pahadia also claimed that Gupta failed to return the funds to the investors.
DCP Thakur informed that Pahadia and Gupta were summoned by the police station upon receipt of the complaint, and that Gupta left the police station around 8pm after the enquiry.
“Gupta and Pahadia were summoned to the police station and questioned. Gupta left the police station around 8pm after the enquiry and around 10.30pm, his family visited the police station and complained that Gupta didn’t reach home,” informed Thakur, quoted in an Indian Express report. Thakur hinted at it as the case of suicide by hitting the train on the railway tracks. The DCP (South), however, assured to look into the grievances raised by Gupta’s family.
