Ghaziabad: Inmate of rehab centre killed by caretaker, his son | Ghaziabad News – Times of India

GHAZIABAD: An inmate admitted to a rehabilitation centre for alcohol addiction was allegedly beaten to death by its caretaker and his son. Both the accused have been arrested.
The accused have been identified as Saurabh and Mehul Tyagi, residents of Delhi’s Shahdara. Police said Bharat Bhooshan (32), a resident of Sadar Bazar in Delhi, was admitted to the rehabilitation centre by his family for alcohol addiction on July 18. On July 23, his father Premchand came to visit him but found he was missing for two days. He tried to talk to Saurabh but his phone was switched off. Mehul, who supported his father at work, was also nowhere to be found and was unreachable on the phone.
On July 27, Premchand filed a complaint at Tila Mod police station, on the basis of which an FIR was lodged.
Gyanendra Singh, SP City-2 (trans-Hindon area) said people staying at the rehab centre told police that a fight had taken place on July 21 in which Bharat had been beaten with a stick by the father-son duo. “Eyewitness told cops the two men put Bharat’s body in a Swift and fled. After that, they didn’t return to the rehab centre,” he added.
Police arrested Saurabh on August 15 and Mehul the next day. “During interrogation, the accused said Bharat had abused them when he couldn’t get liquor after being admitted to the rehab centre. On the day of the incident, Saurabh and Mehul hit him when he abused them again. One of the wooden sticks that they used hit Bharat’s head. Blood started oozing out and he died on the spot. They took the body to Muzaffarnagar and buried it in a farm belonging to Saurabh’s brother-in-law Kapil Tyagi. They also buried the two wooden sticks used in the crime,” SP Singh said, adding that Kapil is currently absconding.
Singh said on July 27, the accused took out the body from the farm and threw it into Ganga canal in Muzaffarnagar. While the body is yet to be recovered, the weapon has been found. Saurabh and Mehul have been booked under IPC sections 302 (punishment for murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence, or giving false information to screen offender) and sent to judicial custody.
