Chandigarh, September 29
The Punjab Anti-Gang Task Force on Thursday nabbed Davinder Bambiha gang member Neeraj Chaska from Jammu.
He was wanted for the murders of Gurlal Brar and Chandigarh’s Surjit Bouncer.
Gurlal was the cousin of gangster Goldy Brar.
Goldy Brar, while taking responsibility for singer Sidhu Moosewala’s murder, had said that police had let off the killers of his cousin.
Punjab DGP Gaurav Yadav said here on Thursday that the police also recovered two foreign-made pistols, including .30 caliber and .32 caliber, along with 17 live cartridges, from Chaska's possession.
Yadav said that apart from Gurlal’s murder, Chaska had been directly involved in at least four more murders, including the murder of kabbadi player Money, who was killed in Jaito town of Faridkot district on the directions of Amna Jaito, lodged in Ferozepur Jail in August 2019, and double murder case in which Pardeep, alias Panja, and Rahul were killed in Ambala in March 2021.
The DGP said that Chaska, along with his associates, had also killed Surjit Bouncer at Sector 38, Chandigarh, in March 2020, following which Davinder Bambiha group took the responsibility of the murder on Facebook claiming that Surjit Bouncer was killed to avenge the killing of bouncer Amit Sharma at Saketri.
Yadav said that further investigations and questioning of Chaska will lead to the unravelling of more activities and plans of the Bambiha gang.
The interrogation of Lawrence Bishnoi and his several aides arrested by the Punjab Police had revealed that Chaska was on the hit list of the Bishnoi gang for his involvement in the killing of Gurlal Brar.
