Punjab Police on Sunday busted a cross-border drug smuggling racket being operated by USA-based smuggler Jasmit Singh alias Lucky with the arrest of two persons after recovering six kilogram (kg) heroin from their possession.
Punjab Police on Tuesday claimed to have solved the murder of a Hindu leader in October last year with the arrest of alleged gangster Saraj Singh Sandhu.
Vipin Kumar Sharma, the district president of Hindu Sangharsh Sena in Amritsar, was shot dead in Amritsar by two men.
A joint team comprising the Organised Crime Control Unit arrested gangster Sandhu from Jalandhar, Additional Inspector General H.K.P.S. Khakh told reporters.
Sandhu, alias Mintoo, had purportedly ‘confessed’ to killing Sharma. “I killed Vipan Sharma. He got punished for his deeds as he conspired to the murder of the father of my close friend,” reads a post on his Facebook.
Chief Minister Amarinder Singh congratulated the police on Sandhu’s arrest.
