Punjab police arrest 8 for the brutal attack on Ram Shiv Bhakt Sena chief, main accused absconding: Here is what had happened

One of the key accused, property dealer Gurpreet Singh Ghumman, is still at large. The police have recovered sharp weapons and three bikes from the accused.

Punjab police Friday nabbed 8 people in connection with the brutal assault on the National head of the Hindu organisation Shri Ram Bhakt Sena, Dharmendra Mishra. We had reported how Mishra was attacked in broad daylight by bike-borne assailants in Raj Nagar, Basti Bawa Khel, Jalandhar, Punjab, on December 2 (Wednesday).

The accused have been identified as Karan Kumar (21) of Bank Colony, Mehakpreet Singh (18) of Kabir Vihar, Gurpreet Singh Guri (21) of Mithu Basti, Sarbjeet Singh (20), Harjinder Singh (19) of Basti Bawa Khel, Amritpal Singh (23) of New Raj Nagar and Bhupinder Singh (19), Barjinder Singh (22) of Raj Nagar.

One of the key accused, property dealer Gurpreet Singh Ghumman, is still at large. The police have recovered sharp weapons and three bikes from the accused.

A case under Sections 323, 324, 427, 326, 148, 149, and 120-B of the IPC had been registered against the 8 accused at Basti Bawa Khel police station and all of them would be produced in the local court and taken in remand, said Commissioner of Police Gurpreet Singh Bhullar.

Speaking about the details of the case, Bhullar said that Dharmendra Mishra had his office near the colony developed by the prime accused Gurpreet Singh Ghumman. Around a month back, Ghumman along with Karan Kumar, who works at his office, indulged in an argument with Mishra and the workers of his outfit, following which Ghumman decided to teach Mishra a lesson and hatched a conspiracy with others.

The CP furthered that on December 2 (Wednesday) at 7 pm, the accused attacked Mishra with sharp-edged weapons and baseball bats and managed to escape, leaving the victim seriously injured.

Bhullar informed that a team os CIA-1 staff led by Harwinder Singh was assigned the case. Singh scanned the CCTV cameras, carried out a technical investigation and succeeded in cracking the case by arresting eight accused from their respective houses. The Commissioner assured that Ghumman, too, would be nabbed soon.
