Amritsar, November 24

The Chheharta police have arrested a person for allegedly stealing iron grills installed on the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) corridor.

The accused has been identified as Pankaj Rampal, alias Gajju, of Jawahar Nagar, Chheharta. He was travelling on a goods carrier, which had the stolen iron grills.

According to the police, the accused was intercepted on Amritsar-Chheharta bypass chowk. Rampal was booked on the charge of theft and Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act.

In March 2019, the police had arrested Palwinder Singh of Khasa Colony, and Gurwinder Singh of Khurmanian village, for the similar offence. Iron grills installed on the BRTS corridor had gone missing from different parts of the city, especially between Putlighar Chowk and Chheharta in the last four years.

The PWD and the Municpal Corporation authorities had asked the police for taking stern action against unscrupulous elements involved in stealing of iron grills from the BRTS corridor.
