In the course of their investigation into the Chattarpur shootout in which Ponty Chadha and his brother Hardeep Singh were killed, the Delhi Police have sealed another farmhouse where Ponty’s men had confined Hardeep’s men after throwing them out of farmhouse number 42.

Police sources said that at 11am, 30-40 men, including Ponty’s private security and musclemen from UP, barged into farmhouse number 42. According to Nand Lal, manager of the farmhouse, Ponty’s men broke the lock at the gate and entered the farmhouse.

“They started firing in the air and stuffed us in an SUV. I knew three of them and they took us to farmhouse number 34. There they confined us and Ponty’s protocol manager was standing near us with a gun in his hand. A few minutes later, another man came and told him something and the manager left the farmhouse,” Lal told police in his statement.

 Meanwhile, the police have seized four more guns that were used by Ponty’s men to threaten Hardeep’s men while they were taking over the possession of the Chattarpur farmhouse. But it is not clear whether shots were fired with these guns.

Bhupender Singh, the protocol manager of Ponty, who was leading the trespassers, Uday Raj Singh, PSO of Ponty Chadha, Rajpal, PSO of Chadha’s daughter, and Anand Singh Bisht, his driver, were arrested on Tuesday.

The seized guns belonged to them and the police have sent them to ballistic experts to confirm whether any shots were fired from them.
