Panchkula, June 18

The Panchkula police have identified the armed men who freed undertrial Deepak Kumar from police custody yesterday.

A senior police official said gangster Sampat Nehra, who was wanted by the Punjab Police and the Chandigarh Police, freed Deepak from police custody. His face was identified in the CCTV footage. During the questioning of Deepak’s friends and Joginder, who was brought on a production warrant from the Ambala jail, they had got some more leads and were working on these, he said. 

Sources said Nehra, a national-level decathlon silver medallist and son of an Assistant Sub-Inspector of the Chandigarh Police, freed Deepak for "supari killing" of a Punjabi film director. 

Security has been beefed up at the movie director’s residence in Sector 46, Chandigarh. Recently, Nehra had demanded a huge ransom from the movie director, the sources said. 

Nehra, a resident of the Police Lines, Sector 26, Chandigarh, is wanted by the Patiala police in a carjacking case that took place last year. 

He is also wanted in an attempt-to-murder case in Chandigarh. On December 30, 2016, an attempt-to-murder case was registered after a Kharar resident alleged that Nehra and his friends attacked him with rods, sticks and also fired a bullet at him in Sector 27. In the CCTV footage of the hospital, Sampat Nehra was seen hitting Constable Rakesh.
