Mohali, India: Two men were discovered dead under suspicious circumstances on the railway tracks near Sector 82 in Chilla village in Mohali on Monday. Despite being run over by a train, the Government Railway Police (GRP) are treating the case as a murder, suspecting foul play in the deaths of the two men.
GRP DSP Jagmohan Singh stated that the victims, believed to be between 25 and 30 years old, had their heads severed from their bodies. This has led authorities to suspect that they were murdered somewhere else and their bodies were then dumped on the tracks to make it appear as if they had been involved in an accident or had died by suicide.
The forensic team found a broken mobile phone and its cover near the tracks, as well as tattoos on the arms of the victims. Additionally, the discovery of blood spots a few feet away from the tracks suggests that the men may have been transported in a vehicle before being thrown onto the tracks.
Mohali police, led by DSP Harsimran Singh Bal, also arrived at the scene, but a brief jurisdictional dispute between Mohali police and GRP was resolved with the decision that the case belongs to the GRP.
Sirhind GRP SHO Rattan Singh reported that the bodies have been taken into possession, and a case under Sections 302, 201, and 34 of the IPC has been registered. The bodies have been kept at the mortuary for 72 hours for identification, and if not claimed, GRP will proceed with a postmortem and cremation.
In summary, the discovery of two men found dead under mysterious circumstances on the railway tracks near Mohali has led authorities to suspect foul play and treat the case as a murder investigation. A broken mobile phone, tattoos on the victims’ arms, and blood spots near the tracks further suggest that the men may have been killed elsewhere and their bodies disposed of on the railway tracks. The investigation is ongoing as authorities work to identify the victims and uncover further details surrounding their deaths.
