Identified as Jasbir Singh, the accused, along with the minor girls, were handed over to the Chhattisgarh police.

On Tuesday, ACP (Crime) Arvind Kamboj received information from Chhattisgarh police that a man wanted for kidnapping two minor girls was hiding in the gurdwara complex. Acting on this, Panchkula police constituted teams and found Jasbir staying in a room on the gurdwara premises with two minor girls.

On being questioned, he falsely claimed to be Praveen Kumar. Panchkula police shared the minors’ pictures with Chhattisgarh police, who confirmed their identity and arrived in the city to arrest Jasbir.

ACP Kamboj said the accused was also wanted for kidnapping a child from Delhi railway station, for which a case was found registered in Najafgarh, Delhi, besides the case in Chhattisgarh. “For the past three months, he had been hiding at different religious places to evade arrest,” he added.
