A week after groping in dark in the Shiv Sena leader murder case, police have announced a cash reward of Rs 5 lakh for information on killers.
Shiv Sena labour wing leader Durga Prasad Gupta was gunned down by two assailants on April 23 at Lalhedi Chowk in Khanna.
Khanna senior superintendent of police (SSP) Satinder Singh said any person who wants to provide any information on killers can contact him on 98140-54946, 95929-14043. He said the identity of the person providing information would be kept secret.
He said a special investigation team (SIT) has been set up to look into the case.
It’s is the second time within a month that the Ludhiana police have announced a reward for information on killers in a murder case. Police had announced an award of Rs 10 lakh for information on killers of Namdhari sect matriarch Chand Kaur, who was gunned down on April 4.
Director general of police (DGP) Suresh Arora has asked ADGP, internal vigilance cell and human rights, Prabodh Kumar, to supervise the probe into six major cases relating to attack on right-wing Hindu leaders in Punjab in the past few months.
