Eleven days have passed, but the police have failed to make any headway in the murderous attack on Punjab Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) vice-president Brigadier Jagdish Gagneja (retd).
A special team of the Jalandhar police commissionerate, headed by ACP Cantonment Mukesh Kumar, which was sent to retrieve the faces of the attackers from the CCTV footage in Gujarat Forensic Sciences University, Gandhinagar, has also returned without getting images of the attackers as they were covering their faces at the time of the attack.
“The video footage from the CCTV camera was not of good quality. The experts applied various techniques but failed,” an official involved in the investigation confirmed.
Meanwhile, RSS state campaign convener Ram Gopal said the attack was a “well- planned” strategy to destabilise Punjab ahead of the assembly polls. “This attack is the result of frustration of such forces, planned and executed by a few separatists,” he said.
