The Punjab police has arrested two accomplices of key accused Nishan Singh Brar in the Shruti kidnapping case.
The police have also recovered the vehicle in which the 16-year-old girl was kidnapped in broad daylight on September 24, zonal inspector general of police Nirmal Singh Dhillon on wednesday said.
According to the IGP, the aides of the Brar, Varinder alias Dhalla and Pardeep alias Popy, residents of Moga, were arrested in a joint operation by the Faridkot and Moga police last evening.
Acting on a tip-off, police conducted raids at Brar's possible hideouts in Ludhiana, Chandigarh and Mohali.
Protests against the police inaction in the case entered the ninth day on Wednesday. The citizen committee formed for the purpose has given a call for 'Faridkot bandh' on October
