With the arrest of four persons involved in a robbery case, the Commissionerate of Police on Tuesday solved the incident that took place in the Kukki Dhab locality and in which a group of robbers had looted a family at gunpoint. While the police claimed to have arrested four out of the five accused, the jewellery and cash looted from the family were still missing.

Those arrested have been identified as Rajan, alias Raju, and Harnoor Singh, alias Noor, both residents of Kot Sadiq, and Deep Singh, alias Deep, and Navpreet Singh, alias Abhi, of Hamirpur village in Kartarpur. Raids were on to arrest the fifth accused, identified as Deepak, alias Deepu, a resident of Kot Sadiq village.

Commissioner of Police Gurpreet Singh Bhullar said on July 14, the incident was reported wherein the robbers had taken the jewellery from a family. He said during checking on July 19, a police party had signalled all the four accused riding two-wheelers — an Activa scooty and a motorcycle (CT-100). However, after watching the police party, the accused tried to run away from the check-point.

“During the interrogation, Navpreet Singh, alias Abhi, revealed that on July 14, his cousin Deep had received a phone call from Deepak, alias Deepu, of Kot Sadiq, who asked him to get ready for a robbery.

Further, after the phone call, they all assembled at the canal in Kot Sadiq where Deepak planned and executed the robbery and asked all the accused to change their get-up. Afterwards, they went to a sweets shop and bought a box of sweets and left for a colony, where Deepak armed with a pistol entered a house and then signalled the other accused to come in.

Subsequently, they robbed the old woman of her jewellery, including two golden earrings, one nose ring, two bangles and a ring. Then they fled from the spot and again assembled at the canal of Kot Sadiq village where they changed their get-up once again and returned to their homes. The accused, identified as Deepak, alias Deepu, kept the jewellery with him and is still at large.

A case under Sections 454, 380, 379-B, 452, and 120-B of the IPC has been registered against the accused at the police division number seven.
