Judge's son shot by guard in Gurugram dies

October 23, 2018 11:35 IST

A 19-year-old son of a Gurugram judge who was shot at by his personal security guard, died of injuries at a hospital on Tuesday morning.

Additional Sessions Judge Krishan Kant's 45-year-old wife Ritu died on October 14 and his son Dhruv, 18, was in a critical state and on life support after they were shot at by their armed guard, Mahipal Singh, when they were coming out of a shopping mall on October 13.

 

Singh was arrested soon after the incident and later sent to judicial custody.

After initial interrogation of the accused, police officers said that Singh was a Haryana police head constable and serving as personal security guard of the judge for the past two years.

He had been demanding leave to go home but this was not granted. This might have led to him suffering from depression, the officers said.

In video footage of the incident recorded by a witness, Mahipal was seen with the gun in his hand. He was also seen trying to push Dhruv inside the car as he laid listless on the road.
