Muzaffarnagar (UP), Dec 7 (PTI) Police constable Rambir Singh today surrendered in a court here in connection with the killing of Head Constable Shakir Ali in 2011.

Additional district sessions judge Amber Rawat sent Singh to jail custody and fixed the next date of hearing on December 11.

Delhi-based advocate Bharat Vir Tomar allegedly abducted and murdered Head Constable Shakir Ali on April 3, 2011, after he opposed his wife’s illicit relationship with Tomar.
