Ponty Chadha and his brother were killed at a farmhouse in Chhattarpur during a shootout on November 17, 2012.

New Delhi: Sacked Uttarakhand minorities panel chief SS Namdhari and 21 others were on Saturday chargesheeted for murder, conspiracy and kidnapping in the November 17, 2012 killing of liquor baron Ponty Chadha and his brother Hardeep in a shootout at a farmhouse in the national capital. The Delhi Police filed its chargesheet in the court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Mukesh Kumar, who had on Friday expressed displeasure over its failure to fulfil their assurance of filing the document by February 15.

The court took cognisance of the chargesheet and directed the crime branch of Delhi Police to produce Namdhari and the 10 other arrested accused before it on February 19. In its over 1000-page long document, the police has chargesheeted Namdhari and 21 others for the offences including murder, attempt to murder, conspiracy, kidnapping, illegal confinement, trespass and destruction of evidence under the Indian Penal Code. They have also been chargesheeted under the provisions of the Arms Act.

Ponty Chadha and Hardeep, who had an alleged property dispute, were killed in a shootout at a Chhattarpur farmhouse in South Delhi on November 17, 2012. The chargesheet has also listed out 110 prosecution witnesses in the document. A copy of the chargesheet was provided to all the parties in the case. Out of 22, the Crime Branch had arrested Namdhari, his PSO Sachin Tyagi and nine others for their alleged role in the case.

On Friday, the Crime Branch had also sought extension of the judicial custody remand of all 10 arrested accused by two days. The court had allowed the plea and had directed the police to produce them before it on February 17.
