Two days after his arrest, the police on Saturday recovered a .32 bore gun and a stolen car from the possession of history-sheeter Sandeep Kumar alias Sunny, 28.
Earlier, Sandeep and his accomplice, Honey alias Deep, 27, resident of Ludhiana, were presented before the court that remanded them in two-day police custody.
The duo was arrested following a 300-metre chase at Dhanas on Thursday night, after police received a tip-off that they had tried to extort money from a jeweller.
Sandeep had managed to give Punjab Police a slip at Sector 43 on October 6, and fled in Honey’s car waiting outside. The police are investigating who else helped him escape.
After his escape from the court, Sandeep on October 12 had robbed a car on gunpoint from a resident of SAS Nagar near the lightpoint of Kali Bari, Sector 47.
Sandeep is also booked for threatening Poonam Dilawari, station house officer (SHO) of Sector-19 police station, after the police arrested his sister for allegedly manhandling a woman cop.
Besides, Sandeep is booked in two cases each registered in Chandigarh and SAS Nagar and one in Ludhiana.
