In its charge sheet in the case relating to the death of liquor baron Ponty Chadha, the Delhi Police have named Hardeep Chadha for causing the death of his elder brother in a shootout at a farmhouse here in November last year.

The Delhi Police Crime Branch filed the charge sheet before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Raj Kumar Tripathi and named Hardeep, who was also killed in the shootout, as an accused in the case, saying their probe had revealed that Ponty was killed due to the shot allegedly fired at him by his brother.

“From the investigations conducted, it has emerged that Hardeep Singh Chadha caused grievous injuries to Narender Ahlawat (Ponty’s manager) and death of Gurdeep Singh alias Ponty Chadha,” the police have alleged in its charge sheet.

The charge sheet added that “Hardeep expired due to shots fired at him by S. S. Namdhari (sacked Uttarakhand minorities panel chief) and Sachin Tyagi (Namdhari’s PSO)... The investigation did not reveal any other person’s involvement in causing the aforesaid injuries/death”.

The police had earlier filed a charge sheet in a separate case lodged after the shootout against Ponty, Namdhari and Tyagi and 19 henchmen of Namdhari.
