Batala, August 31

The Batala police have arrested six persons, including two ASIs and a policeman deployed with the CM security, for allegedly killing a relative of a woman excise inspector following a road rage brawl in Bhagwanpurai village late on Sunday.

SSP Rachpal Singh, accompanied by senior officers, reached the spot and ordered the arrest of the accused after conducting a preliminary inquiry.

Those nabbed have been identified as ASIs Ranjit Singh and Baljit Singh, both posted with the Amritsar city traffic staff, Head Constables Avtar Singh and Balkar Singh, both doing duty as gunmen with ADGP Parampal Singh Sidhu (retd), Surinder Singh, a policeman deployed with CM security, and Simrat Singh, a local.

The accused were travelling in two cars and wanted to overtake the car of Amarpreet Kaur, an excise inspector. However, sources said she did not give way to the cops because of the narrow road. After a 15-minute chase, Kaur swerved her car into a narrow alley of her native village.

The cops managed to stop her vehicle and started damaging it. She called her brother-in-law Gurmej Singh. Her father-in-law Amrik Singh is a former SAD sarpanch.

In the ensuing altercation, one of the cops shot dead Gurmej Singh. The SSP said a case under Section 302 of the IPC had been registered.

"Despite the fact that Amarpreet Kaur had disclosed her identity, the policemen started passing lewd remarks against her. This infuriated her following which she rang up Gurmej. However, the accused, who were drunk, refused to listen to him and instead one of them took out his service revolver and gunned down Gurmej," he added.

"The accused have been lodged at the Kotli Surat Malhi police station," the SSP said.
