Punjab Police achieved huge success in the killing of 4 soldiers at Bathinda Army Camp. After a marathon investigation for five days Bathinda police has succeeded in resolving the mystery of killing of 4 soldiers. According to Police sources, a colleague shot dead the four soldiers. Bathinda police arrested a jawan in the case. He has been identified as Desai Mohan. During interrogation he changed his statements and tried to mislead the police.
Indian Army’s South Western Command issued a statement on Monday that said, “following a continuous interrogation, Desai Mohan confessed to the fratricide and stealing an INSAS rifle used for allegedly killing them due to personal animosity. There was no terror angle to the killings as speculated earlier in some media reports, it added.

SSP Gulneet Khurana talking to media, said, INSAS used in the attack was stolen from inside the camp. Mohan allegedly stole the weapon along with a filled magazine. “He then hid the weapon. On 12 April…while… on sentry duty, he recovered the weapon from its hiding place, moved to the first floor, and killed all four personnel while they were asleep.” Mohan later allegedly threw the weapon into the sewage pit.
“The weapon and additional ammunition have been recovered from the sewage pit,” the statement said. It added Mohan earlier tried to divert the attention of investigating agencies by claiming two people in civvies and carrying an INSAS rifle and an axe were involved in the killings.
