Tarn Taran, October 30

The investigation by the district police into the murder of Shaurya Chakra awardee Balwinder Singh has hinted at the involvement of gangster Jaggu Bhagwanpuria.

Balwinder, who single-handedly fought militancy, was shot on October 16 on his residence-cum-school premises in Bhikhiwind township by two armed assailants.

The Goindwal Sahib police today brought the gangster on a production warrant from the Patiala jail. He was medically examined at the local Civil Hospital. A senior officer said the police had got vital clues in the case.

The officer said the district police were studying gang-related firing incidents in the district from 2016 to 2018. In 2016, gangster Dilbag Singh, alias Lamma, of Patti was killed and another injured in an exchange of fire between two factions of a gang near Bath village on the Tarn Taran-Khadoor Sahib road. In 2018, two gangsters were shot and two others injured in Goindwal Sahib town, 25 km from here. — OC
