    PANAJI: A senior police officer from Jharkhand has served a legal notice to Porvorim police to register a case of murder in connection with death of his son Abhishek Kumar, who was allegedly brutally assaulted by bouncers of a Nerul club in October 2013.

    The deceased's father, Chandra Bhushan, has sought the offence to be registered under Section 302 (murder) and Section 396 (dacoity) of the Indian Penal Code. Abhishek died on November 10. His mobile phone was stolen during the incident.

    The matter is being hushed up with an ulterior motive of protecting the owner and staff of the club, Bhushan has alleged in the notice. While seeking to transfer the case to CID, crime branch, the notice stated that the legal proceedings will be initiated including a petition in the high court, if the request is not granted.

    Porvorim PI Shivram Vaigankar said the case was registered under Section 304 -A (causing death by negligence) against the management of the club and there is no substance in the allegations.
