Last rites of UP Police constable Ankit Tomar was held in Baghpat today. He was killed during the encounter with gangsters in Shamli on Wednesday(3rd Jan 2018).
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tweets grief at loss:-“I pray God to give strength to the courage and bravery of Sri Ankit Tomar Ji who died in the encounter during the encounter with gangsters in the district Shamli and give him a humble tribute and to give strength to bear the incident to his family”.
Ankit had a very severe injury in the shoot-out and was admitted to Noida’s Fortis Hospital. The bullet which was shot in his ears didn’t exit the skull. This happened on January 2nd-3rd night when his team of police personnel posted at Kairana was chasing a notorious gangster.
The funeral was shown live on the twitter feed of Baghpat police. UP Chief Minister tweeting immense sorrow for Ankit got viral.
Chased gangster Sabir Jandhedi was the one who got escaped from police custody in May 2017. He was most wanted criminal in several cases of dacoity, murder, extortion and carried a bounty of Rs 1 lakh on his head.
Even after doctors trying hard to save Ankit, they couldn’t. Here is a lesson for all of us; let’s not support gangsters in our localities. We may feel like making friendship with them just because we may get some support from them. But we shouldn’t. Isn’t it?
