Amritsar, June 16

Five days after a goldsmith was tricked by a couple and decamped with gold rings, the police have arrested the accused Jaspal Singh and his wife Sapinder Kaur.

The police recovered seven gold rings weighing 24 gm from them. During interrogation, the couple confessed to committing three more crimes in a similar way, said Mukhwinder Singh Bhullar, Deputy Commissioner of Police, at a press conference here on Wednesday.

He said the couple had duped a goldsmith in Gurdaspur in March and in Gate Hakima and Cantonment police area here in similar fashion four days ago. They were produced in the court and brought on police remand for further investigations, he said. More cases are likely to be traced, he said. While Jaspal had five cases of fraud, theft and NDPS Act registered against him, his wife Sapinder had four cases against her.

Meanwhile, a notorious criminal Vikramjit Singh, alias TT, of Mustfabad area, was arrested with 90-gm gold and a country-made pistol with five live bullets. Vikramjit, who had 10 cases of robbery and theft against him, had looted a doctor couple along with other accomplices after making her family hostage in January. He has been evading arrest since then. He had also admitted to robbing an elderly in Dilavari Street, Putlighar, the police said.
