Ludhiana, October 20

The city police today nabbed three miscreants who had made an attempt to loot a jewellery showroom, located on Tajpur road, last night.

The police have registered a case under relevant sections of the IPC and the Arms Act against the three accused, Himanshu of the Rahon road, Rizwan of the Bajra road and Rizwan, alias Sameer, of Puneet Nagar.

JCP Sachin Gupta, ADCP Rupinder Kaur Sra and ACP Davinder Chaudhary addressed a press conference regarding the matter.

On Tuesday night, the robbers had entered SS Jewellers where they held the owner, Avtar Singh, at gunpoint. He acted bravely and fought with the accused. The owner had caught hold of one of the robbers but all of them managed to flee the spot. The accused had left their country made pistol and Bajaj Pulsar motorcycle on the spot.

He had also made an attempt to chase the robbers but in vain. The JCP said today acting on a tip-off, all three robbers were arrested by the police and further probe was on in the case.

ADCP Rupinder Sra said so far no past criminal history of the accused was found and it seemed that it was their first loot attempt.

“Our probe is still on, we will inquire if they had committed any other loot in the past,” the ADCP said.
