The Amritsar rural police have arrested a gangster, identified as Gurjant Singh, alias Sunny, of Thathia village falling under the Jandiala police station here.

He was nabbed late last evening at a checkpoint. On seeing the police naka, he tried to run away but was overpowered by the police team, while his accomplice managed to escape from the spot. He was later identified as Gurpreet Singh, alias Gopy, of the same village. Raids were on to nab him, said the police authorities in a statement issued here.

The police said the Jandiala police got a tip-off that Gurjant and his accomplice were coming on Jandial bypass T-point in a car PB-02-CL-2248. When the police team signalled his car to spot, a youth slipped away from it while another youth Gurjant Singh was caught by the police team.

During search, the police found a .32 bore pistol with six live cartridges from his possession. A case under the Arms Act was registered against them while raids were on to nab Gurpreet, the police said.
