As per details, the four accused in the case —Priyavrat alias Fauji (shooter), Kashish alias Kuldeep (shooter), Deepak alias Tinu (close aide of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi), and Keshav Kumar (who provided the geataway vehicle to shooters) — were arrested in a MCOCA case by the Delhi Police. They had subsequently been brought on transit remand from Delhi on Monday by the Punjab Police and produced in Mansa court on Tuesday. The court sent the men to police custody till July 13.

A police officer said that Punjab Police were yet to get possession of the phone, weapons and other belongings seized from the arrested men and the legal process to secure custody of the same had been launched.

The Delhi police, so far, has recovered eight grenades, nine electronic detonators, three pistols, one assault rifle, three Punjab police uniforms, two mobile handsets along with a dongle, a sim, one 9 mm pistol along with 10 live cartridges, and one pistol of .30 mm bore along with 9 live cartridges from the possession of the arrested men. Sources in the Punjab Police said that it was very important that the state police force got possession of these items as soon as possible as they were crucial for further investigations.

“We have initiated the process and will get the phones and other belongings from teh Delhi Police soon. We are hopeful that they will also hand over the data that they recovered from the phones, so that we can also use the same in our case,” a Punjab police officer said.
