Three days after an accountant was robbed of his Mahindra Scorpio, cash and gold at gunpoint on Lodhi Club Road on Sunday, police have cracked the case with the arrest of four members of a gang.
According to police, the accused – Surjit Singh, alias Makhan Singh, 49, of Ferozepur; Pooran Singh, alias Pannu, 28, of Ferozepur; Sahib Singh, alias Saba, 30, of Ferozepur; and Sobar Randhawa of Fatehgarh Churia Road – were also involved in the August 25 robbery wherein they took away a couple’s Maruti Suzuki Brezza at gunpoint near J-Block of BRS Nagar.
The robbed cars, besides two other stolen cars, a .32-bore pistol, stolen gold jewellery and two mobile phones have been recovered from their possession. Another gang member, Lakhvinder Singh of Ferozepur, remains at large.
“During investigation into both robberies, police tracked down the gang members. While Pooran, Sahib and Sobar were arrested on Tuesday, Surjit was caught on Wednesday. Their accomplice Lakhvir managed to flee,” additional deputy commissioner of police (ADCP-3) Sameer Verma said.
