After killing two assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs) Bhagwan Singh and ASI Dalwinderjit Singh at New Grain Market in Jagraon yesterday, gangster Jaipal and his aides spent some time at the crime spot.

The video grab (which is available with The Tribune) shows the gangsters were not in a hurry to leave the spot and they spent around 10 minutes near the bodies of the policemen.

“After killing the two ASIs, they spent almost 10 minutes near the bodies of the two policemen. Afterwards, they took some packets from a canter and put them in their Hyundai i10 car. Assailants had parked their car in front of the canter and without any fear, they shifted some suitcases from the canter. They were moving around the place to check if the policemen had succumbed to their injuries or not. They were also aware that other people were present in the grain market despite that they were not in a hurry to flee the spot after committing the crime,” said an eyewitness who shot the video.

“When the gangsters saw that they were being recorded through a mobile phone, they also fired at us. However, nobody suffered any bullet injuries. Afterwards, they fled the spot in both vehicles.

Eyewitnesses said when the gangsters fired at them, they also escaped from the spot to save their lives.

“We even heard sound of gunshots when they killed the policemen. We also tried to call the police when the accused were present on the spot but to no avail. After around 30 minutes, the police reached the spot,” said another eyewitness.

Gangster Jaipal was staying in city for long

Police sources said gangster Jaipal Bhullar had been staying at the house of his aide Darshan Singh of Sahauli village in Ludhiana for the past one-and-a-half month. Though Jaipal is wanted by the Punjab Police for a long time, the Ludhiana rural police and the intelligence wing failed to nab him. Now, after the Jagraon incident, the police conducted a raid at the house of Darshan after getting information.
