The police have arrested yet another miscreant wanted in three separate cases. The accused, identified as Akashdeep Singh (34), had changed his identity as Garcha Singh of Bhai Manjh Singh in Sultanwind area after donning the Nihang attire.

Recently, he had assaulted a devotee with a kirpan at a shrine when he was partaking langar.

Dr Darpan Ahluwalia, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, said Garcha Singh was an addict. Around two years ago, he was a cut surd.

Recently three criminal cases of assault and criminal trespass and snatching were registered against him. She said Garcha was among the group of miscreants who had attacked the house Jaspal Singh, a resident of Kot Wadhawa Singh. They had burned his son’s bike parked outside the house. They had thrown petrol bombs inside his house. She said Jaspal had opposed them from drug peddling in his locality.
