CHANDIGARH: Four gangsters, including the “mastermind” of last year’s Nabha jailbreak, were today nabbed from a house in Dhudike village of Moga district in Punjab, police said.
“Gurpreet Singh Sekhon, who had escaped from Nabha jail last year, and three gangsters have been arrested,” Punjab Police, AIG (Counter Intelligence) Gurmit Singh Chauhan said today.
The three others who have been arrested are Manvir Sekhon, cousin of Gurpreet, Rajwinder Singh and Kulwinder Singh from the house of an NRI, the officer said.
Acting on a tip-off, 25 policemen, including 10 members of police’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team, nabbed the gangsters, Chauhan said.
“Our operation was so precise that we did not give the gangsters time to retaliate or draw their weapons,” he said, adding four weapons and two cars were seized from them.
With the nabbing of Gurpreet, so far three of the six Nabha jail escapees have been apprehended. (AGENCIES)
