The Mumbai crime branch received a letter yesterday informing that the eight policemen who were summoned to appear before the investigating officer, in connection with the murder of Haryana-based gangster Sandeep Gadoli did not get tickets and hence they failed to turn up.
The summons that was issued on May 20 had asked them to come to Mumbai and record their statements. Divya Pahuja, the mole that gave out the location of Sandeep is also in the docks.
A team of Haryana police, led by sub inspector Pradyuman Yadav, murdered Gadoli on February 7 in Andheri’s Hotel Airport Metro around 11 pm.
His family has demanded fair investigation and has refused to take back his body, which is still lying in JJ hospital mortuary. The Bombay High Court in March had rejected Sandeep’s brother Kuldeep’s plea to file a FIR against the cops, after which he approached the Supreme Court. The next hearing is scheduled on May 27 in the apex court.
A team of Haryana cops barged into the hotel room where Sandeep was staying with Pahuja. They shot at Gadoli three times. One bullet hit him in the chest and exited through his back and two more, on either side of his torso that ruptured his internal organs and were lodged inside him.
