30-year-old Man Dies Of Suspected Drug Overdose | Ludhiana News

Ludhiana: A 30-year-old man from Maddepur village died of suspected drug overdose. Sidhwan Bet police have booked unidentified suspect for culpable homicide not amounting to murder into the matter.
The deceased was identified as Angrez Singh. Angrez’s uncle Surjit Singh of Khurshaidpura told cops that Angrez had started taking drugs when he shifted to Maddepur. He said on Wednesday when he was going across the river for some work, he saw his nephew Angrez had fallen on the ground and there was an empty syringe lying nearby.
Surjit claimed that from the circumstances it seemed to him that Angrez must have injected drugs. He added that he doesn’t know from whom he got the syringe and drugs. Police officials said after finding his nephew dead, the complainant informed the police.
Police later booked unidentified accused under Section 304 of IPC (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of IPC. Police officials said the accused is yet to be identified.
Local sources said even as 108 ambulance normally shifts such persons to a government hospital, but due to some issue, the body was taken to Jagraon sub-divisional hospital in an auto-rickshaw. They said to add to the suffering of the bereaved family, the refrigerator in the mortuary was not working, so the body had to be kept on ice outside the mortuary.
Ranjit Singh and Harpreet Singh of Soch Punjab and anti-drug committee said to do other works, the government can argue that treasury of state is empty, but to end drug abuse, no funds are required.
Meanwhile, SMO of government hospital in Jagraon, Dr Pardeep Mohindra told media persons that the refrigerator in the hospital’s mortuary got damaged due to power fluctuations and he has asked the officials concerned to get it repaired immediately.
