In a shocking twist of events, popular television actor Bhupinder Singh, known for his roles in Indian TV serials such as 'Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam' and 'Ek Haseena Thi', has been arrested and charged with murder. The incident occurred in Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh, following a dispute over the felling of Eucalyptus trees on a neighboring farm. The altercation resulted in the death of 23-year-old Govind Singh, and serious injuries to three of his family members.
From Dispute to Deadly Confrontation
Reports indicate that the violent confrontation stemmed from Bhupinder Singh's intent to cut trees to erect a fence for his farm. The disagreement escalated, leading to the actor and his aides allegedly firing over 10 rounds from both licensed and illegal firearms. This indiscriminate act of violence led to the death of Govind Singh and left three others injured.
Police Negligence in Spotlight
Adding to the gravity of the incident is the alleged negligence by local police. The victim's family claims to have previously reported a complaint against Bhupinder Singh, which was seemingly disregarded. This negligence has cost three police officials their jobs, as they were suspended in the aftermath of the incident.
In the wake of this tragic event, the Deputy Inspector General of Moradabad, Muniraj, visited the crime scene and has pledged a thorough investigation. An Additional SP level officer has been assigned to probe into the alleged police negligence. Bhupinder Singh now faces charges under Sections 302 and 307, which pertain to murder and attempt to murder, respectively.
