Sonu Shah’s murder: Chandigarh police bring two other Bishnoi gang members on production warrant

Chandigarh, October 16

The UT police brought two members of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang on production warrant to probe their role in the Sonu Shah murder case.

Raj Kumar, alias Raju Basodi, and Abhishek were lodged in a Haryana jail.

Raju was arrested by the Special Task Force of the Haryana Police at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi in February this year. The gangster, who was deported from Thailand, was operating an extortion racket for the Bishnoi gang from the foreign land. Raju, a resident of Basodi village in Sonepat, has several cases registered against him in Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, Chandigarh and Delhi.

Police officials said Raju, a key member of the Bishnoi gang, will also be interrogated on the members of the gang active in the region.

Rajveer Singh, alias Sonu Shah, was shot dead by four assailants inside his office at Burail village in Sector 45 in September last year. The assailants had pumped 10 bullets into Shah’s body. His two colleagues, who were present at the office, had also suffered bullet injuries. A day later, a post was updated on the Lawrence Bishnoi’s Facebook profile claiming the responsibility for the murder. — TNS
