A senior police official said, “ “His family members told the police that on Tuesday morning, a group had started pelting stones after barging into the street where his house is located. The family members called Ankit and asked him to rescue them. He reached the street but was stopped by a group. They started beating him up and took him away,”
His father, Ravinder Sharma, is also working in the IB as head constable. The police took the body to GTB hospital for post mortem.
Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court said Ankit’s death was extremely unfortunate. Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal also tweeted expressing his grief over the death of the IB officer calling it “a tragic loss of life” ;
