Patiala, June 5

The police have solved a robbery case in which the accused had fired gunshots at a car owner and fled with the vehicle in Samana.

The police said the accused, identified as Gurpreet Singh, is purportedly linked to Gurvinder Singh (Guri), who is lodged in an Ambala jail in a murder and loot case. Gurpreet was nabbed by the Samana police and CIA staff on Thursday.

Mandeep Singh Sidhu, SSP, Patiala, said Gurpreet claimed he was acting on the directions of Gurvinder Singh. “He told the police that he was directed by the accused on the phone to lift the car,” Sidhu said.

The matter has already raised eyebrows as an accused lodged in the Ambala jail is allegedly linked to robberies taking place in Punjab. The SSP said along with the car, the police also recovered a country-made pistol used in the crime.
