Ludhiana June 10

Gangster Tajinder Singh Teja, who was arrested by the Organised Crime Control Unit (OCCU) on June 2, was brought on production warrant by the local police. Teja had allegedly masterminded the 2 kg gold robbery at a jewellery shop at Ghumar Mandi.

Teja's interrogation revealed that he had links with Khalistani terrorists and he had robbed the jeweller to mobilise funds for carrying out targeted killings in the state.

On March 17, the local police had claimed to have solved the case with the arrest of Bhushan Kumar of Amritsar, but nothing was recovered from him.

Later, Vishnu Kumar, alias Sam, of Ganesh Nagar was arrested by the Khanna police, but again no recovery was made, as the police claimed that the gold was with Teja. Now, even Teja is in the custody of the Ludhiana police, still the looted items could not be recovered.

Sources, however, claimed that of Rs 90 lakh gold and diamond looted from the jeweller, the police had recovered items worth Rs 10 lakh.

Teja reportedly told the cops that he had handed over the gold to one Jassi of Rajouri Garden, Delhi, who had to sell the same and give cash to him. But Jassi was yet to hand over cash to him due to lockdown, Teja had claimed. Besides Teja, other accused Bhushan, and Sam are also in police custody.

SHO Jarnail Singh said Jassi was on police radar and after his arrest, they would be able to recover the looted items.
