Gurugram Horror: Police decoding shooter Mahipal’s Facebook post trying to identify motive behind the crime

Hours after the dreadful Gurugram double-shooting case, wherein the official gunman to the Gurugram Additional District Judge Krishan Kant shot the latter’s seventeen-year-old son and wife, the police have intensified their investigations and are trying to extensively scrutinize Singh’s past life and affiliations to understand why he committed the crime.

The accused head constable, Mahipal Singh, whose services from the state police were terminated on Sunday, was produced before a local court later in the day. The city police have sought a week’s custody for extensive interrogation of Singh to establish the reason why he shot the duo. It has set up a Special Investigation Team to investigate the case from all angles.

Deputy commissioner of police Sumit Kuhar confirmed that Singh was particularly active on Facebook and had two Facebook profiles, both of them with the name, ‘Mahipalji’. During the course of the investigation, the police came across Mahipal’s latest Facebook post, posted a day before the crime transpired, which is being seen as a crucial evidence.

The police are trying to unravel the post and establish a connection between the murder and the coded post. The police are now suspecting a pre-planned conspiracy behind the shooting.

While this angle is being investigated intensively a senior police officer, who is part of the interrogation team also said, “Mahipal is frequently changing his statements and becomes furious whenever he is questioned. He said he was depressed due to family problems”. In his statement, Mahipal claimed that he was unhappy with the judge and his family’s behaviour towards him. He had been demanding leave to go home for the past few days but was refused, the aforementioned officer said. Reports also state that he has told police that he was upset over being made to do menial jobs for the Judge’s household.

Sources believe that Singh had been watching videos related to religion and it is suspected that he had been attending ‘conversion’ camps. However, police have not been able to verify yet as to how his alleged attendance at such camps could be connected to Saturday’s shooting.

The gunman Mahipal, had open fired at the judge’s wife and son at Gurgaon’s Arcadia market near South City-II in Sector 51 here on Saturday. Mahipal fired five rounds in all. Two bullets hit the judge’s wife Ritu in the neck and torso who later succumbed to her injuries, while his son Dhruv was shot once in the head and twice in the torso, and as per latest information, has been declared brain dead and put on life support.

Ritu’s family members had earlier decided to take her body to Hisar, her native city, for cremation. They later returned to the Medanta hospital to donate her organs.

A case under section 307 of the India Penal Code (Attempt to murder) and section 27 of the Arms Act was registered at Sector 50 police station. Police said they will add other charges to the FIR today.
