The CIA 2 wing of the Ludhiana police busted a gang of robbers and arrested five of its members. All accused have a notorious past as several cases of loot and robberies were registered against them in the past.

The arrested members were identified as Deepak Kumar, alias Ravi, 30, of Balmik mohalla, Satwinder Singh, 25, of Jamalpur, Mohd Asif, alias Sagar, 25, of Punjabi Bagh, Rohit Verma, 27, of Vijay Nagar, Basti Jodhewal, and Vicky Verma of Puneet Nagar, Tibba.

ACP (Crime) Surinder Mohan addressed a press conference regarding the matter.

He said information was received that these persons were sitting in GLADA ground on the Chandigarh road where they were planning to commit a major loot in some factory.

Accordingly, the police party conducted a raid and nabbed the accused. The police also recovered three motorcycles, 18 mobile phones and some sharp-edged weapons from them.

ACP Surinder said accused Deepak was facing eight cases of loot registered and had come out on bail in June last year. Satwinder faced six cases of robberies and he came out on bail in September last year. Mohd is facing four cases and he came out on bail in January this year, while Rohit and Vicky are facing four and one case of loot, respectively, and started committing robberies after coming out on bail.

The ACP said police remand of the accused would be sought from court so that in further probe, more members of their gang could be arrested and more recovery of looted valuables could be made from them. —TNS
