Ludhiana, February 22

The Sahnewal police claimed to have cracked the money exchange shop loot case and arrested four suspects.

The suspects have been identified as Rinku Singh (37) of Giaspura, Pargat Singh (34) of Jaspal Bangar, Durgesh Tiwari (19) of Moti Nagar and Surjit Singh (52) of Jaspal Bangar. The police seized one .32 bore pistol with six cartridges, one 12 bore countrymade pistol with one cartridge, two sharp weapons and two motorcycles from them.

JCP JS Teja, ADCP Dev Singh, ACP (South) Ashok Kumar and Sahnewal SHO Inspector Guljinderpal Singh issued a joint statement in this regard.

Notably, in broad daylight on Monday, miscreants committed a robbery of around Rs 1.15 lakh at gunpoint at a money transfer and telecom shop, Vikas Telecom, in Makkar Colony of the Giaspura area. Five miscreants came on two motorcycles and two of them, with their faces covered, entered the shop around 11:45 am. Shop owner’s father Surinder Shah (51) and two customers were present at the shop when the duo entered the shop and forcefully cornered the two customers. When Shah objected to the same and attempted to stop them, the miscreants overpowered him. The suspects checked Shah’s pockets and snatched Rs 30,000 from him. Afterwards, they looted around Rs 85,000 from a drawer inside the shop.

Teja said Rs 12,000 in cash was also recovered from the suspects and further probe in the case was on so that more recovery of looted cash could be made and more members of the gang be identified. The role of the suspects in past robberies and loot incidents would also be inquired.
