Batala, November 1

The police today nabbed two persons said to be linked to the Lawrence Bishnoi gang here today after a brief encounter.

SSP Rachpal Singh said a police team on the Ghuman-Mehta road signalled an SUV to pull over, but it sped past. Two of the four occupants opened fire at the police. The cops retaliated, forcing the vehicle to stop.

Two gangsters — Stalinjeet Singh and Navjot Singh — were apprehended while the remaining two fled. One of the escapees has been identified as Himmat Singh, facing seven cases of murder and attempt to murder. Their fourth accomplice could not be identified.

Two revolvers, a .32 bore rifle and a large amount of ammunition were recovered from the suspects. The Pajero car in which they were travelling has been impounded.

"Two of the accused fled under the cover of darkness. Four teams have been formed to nab them," said the SSP. — TNS
