We have noted down the registration number of their vehicle. One of the six suspects has been identified through a video recorded on the spot. Raids are being conducted to nab him.

According to the complainant, ASI Shinder Singh, the suspects were consuming alcohol after parking their Hyundai i20 car on the wrong side of the road and were also creating a ruckus. During patrolling, when the cops saw them, they asked them to leave the place. However, the suspects turned violent and started hurling abuses at the cops.

The suspects also assaulted the cops and when they tried to escape, they started throwing stones on the PCR vehicle due to which the cops got injured and their vehicle also got damaged.

A Brezza car that was passing by stopped to help the cops, but the car was also attacked by the suspects. The suspects then fled from the spot in the car and a bike.

The ASI said, “We have noted down the registration number of their vehicle. One of the six suspects has been identified through a video recorded on the spot, whose name is Harjinder Singh, alias Jinna, a resident of Ballomajra village. Raids are being conducted to nab him. Both damaged vehicles are at the Balongi police station.”

A case has been registered against Harjinder and his five accomplices under Sections 353, 186, 341, 506, 427, 148 and 149 of the IPC at the Balongi police station. — TNS
