Two Gurdaspur residents were arrested by the local police after they assaulted cops at a check point near the Deputy Commissioner’s residence here late last evening. 

The suspects have been identified as Gurwinder Singh, an NRI, and his brother Gurjit Singh, both residents of Nivan Dhakala in Gurdaspur. One of the accomplices Noor, a resident of Gurdaspur, managed to slip away from the spot.

Assistant sub-inspector Harsimranpreet Singh said he along with his team was stationed at a check point near Deputy Commissioner Gurdeep Singh Khehra’s residence on Maqbool Road when they intercepted an SUV coming from the Ranjit Avenue side at around 11.30 pm. The suspects, who were apparently under the influence of liquor, started arguing with the cops when the latter demanded registration certificate of the vehicle from them, he said.

He added that when he asked the team to issue a challan, they snatched the challan book and threw it. They entered in a scuffle and tore the uniform of ASI Satpal, head constable Labh Singh and tried to snatch their weapons. 

He said the police team overpowered the duo, however, the third suspect managed to escape from the spot.

Cases under sections 188, 186, 270, 189, 332,353, 382, 511, 34 of the IPC were registered against them. They were produced before a local court which sent them to judicial remand. Investigating officer Karanjit Singh said raids were on to nab the third suspect.
