Resident Welfare Association of South Park Apartments to extend legal support to arrested security guards in Anmol Sarna murder case

The Resident Welfare Association of the South Park Apartments is making preparations to extend legal support to the two security guards arrested in the murder case of NRI youth Anmol Sarna. Anoop Bagai, advocate and a resident of the posh apartment complex, who had earlier told Mail Today about the RWA\'s stand on this case, is expected to try the case on behalf of the two guards with the support of the association.

The families of security guards Surender Bali and Naresh Mishra, who have been booked for the murder of Anmol, continue to get their salaries. Two other guards - Banwari Lal and Joginder - have rejoined work after they were allowed to go following police interrogation.

\"It\'s not their fault that they (guards) have been framed and falsely accused of a crime they did not commit. Their families are already in distress. We don\'t want them to be in distress financially,\" a local resident said.

\"Pranil\'s father went with Anmol in the PCR van. At the time, Anmol was physically fine. It is possible that he (Pranil\'s father) is party to what the police may have done to Anmol or has made a deal with the cops to save his son,\" he added.

The local residents have been maintaining that Anmol looked fine when he boarded the PCR van on the fateful night. The guards were armed with thin bamboo sticks instead of batons, they have said. On their part, the guards had told sleuths that they kept their cool even after Anmol slapped and abused them.

Sleuths have taken nail samples of the four accused - Shivank Gambhir, Madhav Bhandari, Ritham Girhotra and Pranil Shah - to ascertain whether a scuffle had broken out between them and Anmol since blood stains were found inside Pranil\'s house (Flat 95) in Kalkaji.

Meanwhile, a Delhi court on Saturday granted bail to two youths arrested for allegedly helping Anmol\'s friends get the drugs consumed at the party on the night of September 17. Bhuwan Sharma and Nehul were granted bail by metropolitan magistrate Deepak Wason after the police failed to show recovery of the drugs from their possession. The court asked them to furnish a personal bond of Rs.25,000 each with one surety of same amount.

\'Foul play unlikely\'

At a time when several conspiracy theories over the death of NRI student Anmol Sarna are doing the rounds, the legal fraternity and residents in Kalkaji are eagerly waiting to know the charges being framed against Sarna\'s four friends by the Delhi Police.

While Sarna\'s parents alleged \"foul play and manipulation\", a top legal expert closely following the case termed the developments \"unfortunate\", hoping that \"the police will not get bogged down by the pressure from local residents and will conduct a fair investigation.\"

Speaking to Mail Today, the source said: \"The incident at South Park Apartments in Kalkaji is a tragedy in the true sense. Unfortunately, it has been converted into a conspiracyĆ¢€¦ everybody suspects foul play in the incident.\"

He said the Delhi Police was under pressure from the media and the deceased\'s family members. \"No evidence has been received so far to prove that the friends had any intention of causing death to Anmol Sarna.\"

The effect of the amount of drugs consumed by the boys in this case would last only for more than an hour and Sarna\'s volatile condition lasted for almost the same period, he said, adding that \"different people behave differently (after drug abuse). Some can hold it and while others can\'t.\"
