On the directives of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, Section 302 of the IPC has been added to the FIRs against the kingpins directly responsible for the death of 113 persons across three districts, DGP Dinkar Gupta said .

With the arrest of father-son duo Harjit Singh and Shamsher Singh, alias Shera, of Pandori Gola, the total number of arrests in the case had gone up to 54 — 37 in Tarn Taran, nine in Amritsar (Rural) and eight in Batala.
