Faridkot, January 13

Harsimrandeep Singh alias Sema, one of the most wanted gangsters of the district, was arrested from Dehradun this afternoon following a joint operation by the Uttarakhand and Faridkot police. The police have also arrested his three accomplices. Two pistols and one Hyundai Verna car have been seized from them. 

A case against Sema and his men has been registered at Dehradun cantonment police station, said Mukhwinder Singh Chhina, IG, Bathinda range.

The identity of Sema's aides is yet to be verified. After getting a tip-off about his location, a police team led by CIA Inspector Amritpal Singh Bhatti and 16 policemen left for Dehradun this morning and nabbed the gangsters in cooperation with the Uttarakhand police, said the IG.

Belonging to Behbal Kalan village of Faridkot, Sema was being chased by the police after he killed Ravinder Kochhar, an industrialist in Jaito town of Faridkot, in July last year. He was declared a proclaimed offender by a local court two years ago.

Already facing four criminal cases, including two of murder, Sema and his unnamed accomplice were booked by the Jaito police under Sections 302, 120-B IPC and Sections 25, 54, 59 of the Arms Act in Kochhar's murder case.

Sema was the only absconding member of Ranjit Singh-Gurbax Singh Sevewala gang. Three members of this gang -- Karamjit Singh alias Bunty Dhillon (25), Jaspreet Singh alias Jumpy (21) and Nishan Singh alias Nishan (24) -- were killed in Dabwali area of Sirsa in an encounter with the police on June 13 last year. Gurbax Singh, the head of this gang, was arrested from Bathinda soon after the said encounter.

Chhina said the accused would be brought to Punjab for interrogation on production warrant.
