Two sons took revenge for their father’s death by killing the man who was involved in their father’s murder.
The recent firing at a resort in Pushkar, Rajasthan on Saturday brought back all the memories of “The Ajmer Blackmail Incident, 1992”. The two men who did the firing out of revenge are Surya Partap Singh and Dharma Partap Singh, the sons of Madan Singh, a man who was murdered in 1992. This is not any Bollywood movie but a real-life story. The firing was done on Sawai Singh who was the former ward councillor.
The Blackmail Incident, Ajmer
Madan Singh used to run a weekly newspaper. He was writing about the “Blackmail Incident of Ajmer“. In this incident, several girls from the city of Ajmer were blackmailed and then raped. In this case, youth Congress leaders were involved. They used to blackmail and rape school and college-going girls by getting their photographs. The case was also reported at the international level.
As Madan Singh was writing about this criminal act, he was shot at Shrinagar road but got escaped. He was then admitted to Jawaharlal Nehru Hospital where he was again attacked by around 5 to 6 people and lost his life.
After this incident, a case of murder was registered by the police against Sawai Singh, Congress MLA Rajkumar Jaipal and a few others. All of them were then prosecuted. At that time, Surya and Dharma, the sons of the victim Madan Singh were 8 to 12 years old.
But all those accused of killing Madan Singh were relieved from the charges by the court. Then only, both the sons of the deceased Madan Singh pledged to take revenge for their father’s death.
Khalil, a friend of Sawai Singh, who was present at the place of the incident, told that both the sons of Madan Singh and one more man started firing with both hands. One of them was wearing a helmet while the other two were not. Sawai soon died after having bullet injuries in the head and stomach. While his friend Dinesh Tiwari is undergoing treatment.
After this firing incident, the deputy SP of Pushkar, Islam Khan informed that Surya Partap Singh has been arrested. While his brother, Dharma Pratap Singh and their helper escaped from the spot of the crime. The police recovered a country-made pistol and three bullets from Surya’s possessions.
This firing incident was their second attempt to take revenge for their father’s death, in the last ten years. Police also told that both the sons of Madan Singh are also involved in dozens of criminal cases like extortion, threatening and land mafia.
Both the sons along with a man entered the resort on Saturday afternoon and asked for a room, told the witnesses. One of the witnesses, a resort employee also told that he heard the sound of firing and when he went to see it, he found the accused laughing and shouting that he has taken revenge for his father’s murder.
