Mohali, June 14
In a major breakthrough, the Mohali police and anti-gangster task force (AGTF) have arrested two members of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. The suspects were allegedly working for Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar.
The suspects have been identified as Gagandeep Singh, alias Gaagi, and Gurpreet Singh, alias Gopi, both residents of Kingra village in Dabwali of Sirsa district. They were arrested near Dara Studio in Jujhar Nagar, Mohali.
Two .32 pistols were recovered from them along with eight cartridges and a Scorpio vehicle. A case under Sections 25(7) and 8 of the Arms Act has been registered at the Balongi police station.
Mohali SSP Vivek S Soni said Gagandeep and Gurpreet were in touch with Brar through gangster Manpreet Singh, alias Manna, who provided Corolla car to Sidhu Moosewala’s assailants.
Recently, Manpreet was arrested in connection with the Moosewala murder case. The two suspects were allegedly working on the directions of Brar and indulged in illegal weapons smuggling from the border area of Punjab and Rajasthan.
