Inspector Amandeep Singh Brar, Station House Officer (SHO) of the Focal Point police station, said a police party was patrolling near the Vir Palace chowk for routine checking. They got a tip-off that Vivek was into trade of smuggling banned injections. He was on the way to supply banned injections to his clients in the Focal Point area on his Activa scooter.
