A police team headed by Inspector Pramod Shah has been sent to Delhi to find out facts about alleged role of Sachin Tyagi, an Uttarakhand police constable, in the incident at the farmhouse in which the liquor baron and his brother Hardeep were killed, Uttarakhand DGP Satyavrat Bansal said here on Monday.

There have been reports about alleged involvement of Tyagi, currently posted as a gunner with State Minority Commission Chairman Sukhdev Singh Namdhari, in the shootout that took place allegedly in their presence on Saturday.

Mr Bansal said as per information being gathered by the state police in this regard, two FIRs have been registered in connection with the shootout with Delhi police, one each by Mr Namdhari and Mr Hardeep’s PA Nandlal.

Around 50-60 persons have been named as accused in the FIR lodged by Mr Nandlal in connection with the shootout, Mr Bansal said but added that it is still not clear whether Mr Tyagi has been named as an accused in the FIR or not.

The DGP said he has been informed that Mr Namdhari in his FIR has said Mr Tyagi fired a few shots in his defence at the time of the shootout.

There have been reports about Mr Tyagi firing shots at Ponty Chaddha’s brother Hardeep when he tried to shoot Mr Namdhari.
