Claiming to have cracked the murder case of Shaurya Chakra awardee Balwinder Singh, the Tarn Taran police today arrested 11 persons. However, the three main accused, identified as Gurjeet Singh Bhaa, Sukhdeep Singh Bura and Sukhmeet Pal Singh, are still at large.

Addressing a press conference here today, Hardial Singh Mann, DIG, Ferozepur Range, who headed the three-member special investigation team, said the exact motive behind the crime was yet to be ascertained.

“Gurdaspur-based criminals Sukhraj Singh Sukha and Ravinder Singh Gyaan were brought on a production warrant from a Patiala jail a few days back. They revealed that Balwinder was killed at the behest of Sukhmeet Pal Singh, alias Sukh Bhikhariwal,” he said.

The DIG said as per the CCTV footage, the two assailants came on a motorcycle to kill Balwinder which was later thrown into the Sutlej. The vehicle had now been recovered. “After committing the crime, Bhaa and Bura fled to Ludhiana. A manhunt is on to nab them. During their stay in the Salem Tibri area in Ludhiana, they were sheltered by their local accomplices. They kept on changing their hideouts. We have nabbed those who gave them mobiles, food and money. So far, 11 accused have been arrested in the case and three are absconding.”

Besides Sukha and Gyaan, those arrested include Akashdeep, Ravinder Singh Dhillon, Rakesh Kumar, Ravi Kumar, Chand Kumar Bhatian, Manpreet Singh, Jagjeet Singh and Jobanjeet Singh, residents of Ludhiana; and Prabhjit Singh, alias Bittu, of Jalandhar.
