In the early hours of Wednesday, police officers went to a residence in Koshodinghi village under Deori police station to make two arrests.
Giridih SP Amit Renu had said to PTI on Wednesday, ‘It has been stated that a four-day-old boy died when the police went there to carry out two non-bailable warrants issued by the court.’
Renu reported that four to five police officers had gone to serve non-bailable warrants on the deceased’s grandpa, Bhushan Pandey, and another individual.
Renu had stated,’ If the allegation is proven to be true, the erring personnel will not be spared.’
