Police have concluded that the car used by gangster Goru Bachcha to flee after firing at friend-turned-foe Johny Lamba had a fake number plate.
Witnesses had jotted down the car’s registration number and gave it to police. When police verified the number from the district transport office, it turned out to be fake.
Division 5 station house officer (SHO) Beant Juneja said, “The number of the car belongs to a motorcycle. Police have got some vital clues and several teams have been formed to arrest the accused.”
“Johny’s condition has started to improve. Police have been waiting to record his statement to know the reason behind the attack,” the SHO said.
He said, “During the preliminary investigation, police came to know that Johny and Goru Bachcha were close friends once. Johny had bailed him out when he was arrested earlier. After killing three-wheeler driver Vikrant Kumar, Goru Bachcha was on the run.
He had contacted Johny for money, but Johny did not arrange it for him. Police suspect that it was the reason behind the attack. Besides, Bachcha had also been suspecting that Johny was passing on information about his movements to the police.”
Meanwhile, cops were interrogating Student Organisation of India district chief Jeevan Sekha, who was arrested on Friday for sheltering Goru Bachcha.
