The Haryana Police have announced an award of Rs 50,000 for giving information about whereabouts of people involved in the two incidents of firing in Ambala Cantonment on February 8 and 12.


Giving this information, deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Surinder Pal Singh said, "Anyone providing clue about accused Pardeep alias Diljala and Tarsem Singh would be awarded and his or her identity will be kept a secret."

He said that two accused of February 8 incident, Monu and Chota Rinku, had already been arrested, while the third one is at large.

The DCP said that a case under Section 395 (dacoity) and the Arms Act was registered against them at the Cantonment police station after businessmen Surinder Garg, Vinod Garg and his son Vansh had been shot at near their house when they had resisted a robbery attempt.

He said that three accused in the February 12 incident had been arrested, while the main accused, Tarsem Singh of Khailen village under Handesra police station, was still at large.

On February 12, one person was seriously injured when miscreants had opened fire at a cattle feed shop on Ambala-Jagadhri road under the Mahesh Nagar police station. Interestingly, the incident had occurred in the presence of two cops, who had been deployed to provide security to the shop owner Himanshu Gupta.

On February 3, Himanshu Gupta, owner of Sham Khal Bhandar, had received a call wherein the caller had sought Rs 20 lakh from him. Gupta had lodged a complaint at the Mahesh Nagar police station, following which he was provided security.
