Amritsar, July 10

The city police on Friday brought a notorious gangster, Arun Chhurimar, on production warrant from Patiala jail. He was brought by the police for his alleged involvement in two murders that rocked the holy city in 2016.

Chhurimar was part of the Bobby Malhotra gang who had gunned down Haria, head of the rival gang, in front of Division B police station in May 2016 in broad daylight. Two others were injured in the attack. Before this, they had kidnapped and killed Karanjit Singh, an accomplice of the Haria gang, on March 29. His bullet-ridden body was found from Tarn Taran. He was also wanted in the killing of sitting Congress councillor Gurdeep Pehalwan in June 2018.

Evading arrest in many criminal cases registered in the state, he had escaped to Gujarat. He, along with three others, was nabbed by the Gujarat police in February this year.

Chhurimar had around a dozen cases, including those of murder, attempt to murder and robberies, registered against him. In May 2018, his gang had robbed a jeweler, Partap Maratha, in the Guru Bazaar area after shooting his employee Mukesh Kumar.

Similarly, he was also involved in the mid-September 2018 robbery case in which a jeweler, Prem Kumar, was robbed of gold ornaments and diamond jewellery worth Rs 2 to 3 crore. He, along with two others, was nabbed with 1.25 kg of heroin in July 2014.

Parneet Singh, SHO, Sultanwind police station, said he was wanted in these two cases. He was lodged in Patiala jail from where he was brought on production warrant by the local police.
