Additional sessions judge Krishan Kant Sharma’s son Dhruv, who was critically injured after being shot at by the judge’s security guard 10 days back in Gurugram, died in the early hours on Tuesday.
The judge’s wife and son were seriously injured on October 13 after being shot from close range by Mahipal, a Haryana Police constable who was posted with the judge for nearly two years.
According to sources, he was declared dead by doctors at about 4 am.
Hospital sources said the judge’s family had offered to donate Dhruv’s eyes, heart and kidneys.
While the judge’s wife, Ritu (38), died the same night at Medanta hospital, the 18-year-old Dhruv had been on life support system in the hospital. Dhruv was shot in the head, while Ritu took two bullets in the chest.
The security guard was arrested while trying to flee to Faridabad and sacked from Haryana Police the next day.
The shooting incident took place around 3.30 pm on October 13 near Arcadia Market in Sector 49, Gurgaon, where the wife and son of the judge had gone shopping.
The gunman first shot the wife and then the son and tried to drag him into the car. But when he couldn’t, he left them on the road and drove away in the same car.
Video footage captured by eyewitnesses on their mobile phones had gone viral within minutes of the incident.
