Gurugram judge’s son shot at by guard dies, family donates organs

Gurugram, Oct 23 : Gurugram's Additional District and Sessions Judge Krishan Kant's son, who was lying 'brain dead' in Medanta-The Medicity hospital here after being shot at by the judge's security guard on October 13, was declared dead by the hospital on Tuesday.

"A very critical Dhruv was on life support since he was admitted to the hospital on October 13.

He died around 3 a.m. on Tuesday. The family of the deceased donated his organs," A.K. Dubey, Medical Superintendent of Medicity, told IANS.

Ritu (38) and Dhruv (18) were shot and injured by their guard Haryana Police Constable Mahipal Singh (32) at the busy Arcadia market in Sector 49 here on October 13 afternoon.

The judge's wife had died late that night.

Police had said that Mahipal Singh shot at Dhruv and Ritu in a fit of rage.

Deputy Commissioners of Police Sumit Kuhar and Sulochana Gajraj had addressed the media for the first time after the incident on October 17.

According to them, the victims had gone to shop at the market.

When they returned, Mahipal Singh was not near the car.

"Upset over his absence, Ritu scolded Mahipal Singh while Dhruv asked him to hand over the keys of the car.

Angry over their behaviour, the guard first started beating Dhruv who was seated on the passenger seat.

A few minutes later he shot at him twice," Kuhar said.

"The accused also beat up the judge's wife before shooting at her," the officer had said earlier.

Mahipal, whose services were terminated, is currently in Gurugram's Bhondsi jail.
