The police on Monday arrested two persons from Bengaluru in connection with the death of international biker named Asbak Mon (34). The victim had died during Indian Baja Motorsports Dakar Challenge rally in Jaisalmer three-years-ago.
The incident which seemed like an accidental death has now been unfolded by police.
Mon belonged to Kannur district in Kerala, but was residing at RT Nagar in Bengaluru. Initially, the death seemed to be a normal one. Mon was believed to have lost his way in the Jaisalmer desert during a practice run and thought to have died possibly of dehydration or thirst.
The police began investigation into the death after the deceased’s brother and mother termed it as murder.
The officials have now filed a case against the rider’s wife Sumera Parvez and his five friends Sanjay, Vishwas, Neeraj, Sabik and Santosh. The police managed to arrest Sanjay and Vishwas and both were brought to Jaisalmer.
According to Jaisalmer SP Ajay Singh, Mon had come with his wife and five friends for the rally. On August 15, 2018, they saw the track and went on a ride the next day where they lost their way. All others returned except Mon who was later found dead in an area where there was no mobile network. Post-mortem report revealed an injury to his back. His wife showed no suspicion over his death and police filed a final report in the case, the SP said.
Singh said that he studied the final report and found the case suspicious. Adding further, SP said the roles of the rider’s wife and friend Sanjay were found suspicious. After thorough investigating the police concluded that this was a planned murder.
Motive & Arrest
Deceased had disputes with his wife on many issues, said police. He earlier resided in Dubai and shifted to Bengaluru later. Similarly, Sanjay was first to reach the spot and took away the rider’s mobile and other items, the SP said.
Singh said that after getting the proof of planned murder, arrest warrants were issued against Sanjay and others. The investigation officer in search of culprits went to Bengaluru and Kerala, but the accused went underground. Subsequently, a team led by Bhawani Singh went to Bengaluru and arrested Sanjay and Vishwas. Later, they were sent to judicial custody, he said.
