Mystery surges over the case of 20-year-old Gaurang Bobde, who was found dead in the basement of a mall in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh on Friday morning. Several injury marks have been found on the body of the deceased, son of a local builder.
Times of India reported that Gaurang had gone to a pub inside the mall where he partied with his friends till late night. Gaurang was doing his MBA from Pune and had come to Bilaspur only a day earlier from Raipur. The party was from him. His father, Shrirang Bobde, was planning to set up an ash bricks factory for him at Raipur.
However, it is not clear what happened when the party was over.
The guards of the mall found Gaurang in the morning lying on the staircase of the basement. They immediately rushed him to the hospital, where he was pronounced brought dead.
The police visited the spot later and collected some clues of the murder. They took into custody Gaurang’s friends — Karan Kushlani, Ankit Malhotra, Kinshuk Agrawal and Karan Jaiswal, some of the regular visitors of the pub, guards of the mall, bouncers and guards of the pub for interrogating them. The CCTV footage of the pub is also being checked by the police.
A big question mark remains whether it was an accident or a planned murder. Gaurang had injury marks on his eyes, had three fractures in his right hand and he also suffered a liver fracture. All these suggest someone might have hit him hard in the stomach.
The police reported that the pub did not have the permission to be open until such late hours, its license would be also cancelled.
Such an incident took place inside the premises of a prime location like a mall. Yet nobody seems to be sure that whether it is an accident or an intended murder. It is also necessary to find out how and why did this happen. The Logical Indian urges the police to make a speedy but thorough investigation into this matter. We also request our community members to share this post as much as possible so that it reaches to ears of greater authority and action is taken. Even if this is a case of accident, then the mall authority should be held responsible.
