Abohar/Sriganganagar, June 23

The Hanumangarh police have claimed to have arrested all three miscreants who allegedly looted Rs 9 lakh from an SBI customer care centre (kiosk) at Sehajipura village on June 7.

SP Preeti Jain said the police arrested Rajesh Meghwal (19) of Sherewala village (Abohar), Bhim Sain (21) and Sonam Bhurta (19) of Lalgarh Jattan (Sriganganagar) from a rented flat in Ludhiana.

It was yet to be ascertained whether Rajesh had any link with slain gangster Ankit Bhadoo, who also belonged to Sherewala village and was killed in an encounter at Peer Muchalla, near Zirakpur, in 2019. Over the past few months, the police have arrested many miscreants reportedly associated with Lawrence Bishnoi gang to which Ankit belonged. A preliminary investigation indicated that the trio went to Sehajipura village after leaving their mobile phones at home to escape identity, but cops scanned CCTV footage and succeeded in nabbing them.

Kiosk licensee Raj Pal Girdhar had told the police that three masked men had looted Rs 9.25 lakh, gold chain and mobile phone from him at gunpoint. — OC
