Abohar Killing: Prime Accused Amit Doda Surrenders Before Police

Chandigarh; Dec.21: One of the accused in Abohar Dalit murder case, Amit Doda, has surrendered before the police. His uncle and Akali leader Shiv Lal Doda, the main accused in the case, is yet to be arrested.

"Amit Doda surrendered before Superintendent of Police Headquarters Abohar last night," Deputy Inspector General of police, Ferozepur Range, Amar Singh Chahal said.

"Shiv Lal Doda continues to remain elusive," Mr Chahal said adding that efforts are being made to nab him.

Punjab Police had issued a look out circular against Shiv Lal Doda and his nephew Amit Doda yesterday in the case.

The duo has been booked for conspiracy in connection with the murder of a 27-year-old Dalit man Bhim Sain whose limbs were chopped off in Abohar on December 11.

Meanwhile, the Opposition Congress had accused the Punjab Police of "going soft" on the Akali leader and his nephew due to pressure from the ruling SAD-BJP government.

The police have so far arrested 13 persons in the case.

Meanwhile, National Scheduled Caste Commission vice-chairman Raj Kumar Verka instructed the state police chief to provide security cover to both the families of Bheem and Gurjant, the survivor of the attack.

"There were inputs that the accused might eliminate witnesses so it's important to ensure their security," Verka said.
