As per the police, the two cops were attacked when they questioned a group of men drinking alcohol in a car at night in Sonipat’s Butana area despite curfew due to coronavirus.

Even while the constable Ravinder Kumar was in excruciating pain, he managed to scribble the registration number of their vehicle on his palm just before he died, reported NDTV.

Meanwhile, as efforts were on to nab the accused, the number on Ravinder’s palm was noticed during post-mortem which gave his colleagues a vital clue in solving the case. On Monday, Haryana Police confirmed that five of the six accused in the murder were arrested while the sixth was killed by police in Jind district.

”It was a basic policing skill that our brave Constable Ravinder Singh displayed before losing his life. He had scribbled the vehicle number on his hand which was noticed during the post-mortem,” Haryana police chief Manoj Yadava was quoted by NDTV as saying.

Yadav also said the deceased cop would be recommended for a posthumous police medal.
