The Delhi police are likely to file a charge sheet before a court here on Friday over the November 17 killing of liquor baron Ponty Chadha and his brother Hardeep in a shootout in a farmhouse here.

The Crime Branch of the Delhi Police, which had arrested sacked Uttarakhand minorities panel chief S.S. Namdhari and nine others for their alleged role in the case, will submit its charge sheet before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Mukesh Kumar, court sources said.

They said the judicial custody for ten accused — Namdhari, his PSO Sachin Tyagi and eight others — is set to expire on Friday.

The prosecution had alleged in the court that Namdhari had played a “vital” role in conspiracy with the other accused who acted on his orders. — PTI
