Kapurthala, July 6

Three days after the district police arrested Sarabjit Singh Loga of Mohalla Mehtabgarh, Kapurthala, a drug accused from Rajasthan, the police on Monday recovered movable property in his name, including 25 toles of gold worth Rs12.40 lakh and two insurance policies worth Rs30 lakh from his bank locker. Already convicted in a drug case, he had been on a bail when he again got booked in an NDPS case on May 16. He was on the run in his native place but was found by a team of Phagwara’s CIA staff from Jaipur with 1 kg heroin, a Swift Dzire car and gold worth Rs9.1 lakh.

SSP Kapurthala Navjot S Mahal said, “Today, we got the bank locker of the accused opened in IndusInd Bank in the presence of the duty magistrate and recovered the gold and policies. We are also in the process of attaching his plush house in the city which is on his name and that of his accomplice Varun Kumar and the documents for the same have been sent to the competent authority. An FD worth Rs5.5 lakh has also been frozen.”

The police have registered another FIR against him after it was known that he had sought the help of Bharat Bhushan of Mohalla Shergarh (who claimed to have close links in police circles) to get the cases registered against him cancelled. He has alleged that Bhushan had taken Rs5 lakh from him on the assurance and the remaining Rs15 lakh, as per the deal, were to be given to him after the cancellation of the FIRs. A case has been registered.
