The Sirhind police force’s CIA staff have nabbed four ‘Fortuner gang’ members at Gobindgarh Focal Point. With the arrests,an inspector-rank police officer posted in Ludhiana,too,has come under a cloud. Those arrested are Gurjinder Singh alias Fauji of Dakha,Pawan Kumar alias Bhaa of Phagwara,Atinder Bikramjit Singh alias Hunt of Patiala,and Mandeep Singh alias pistoli of Ludhiana.

Three gang members,Jatinder Singh alias Amar alias Langra of Ludhiana,Sukhdev Singh alias Billa of Taran Taran,and Suraj Parkash alias Davvy of Ludhiana,fled. The cops recovered a 32-bore pistol,seven rounds of 32-bore live cartridge,a double-barrel 12-bore rifle with four cartridges,a Tata Safari and a Maruti Zen.

The cops claimed that the gang had earned the name of ‘Fortuner gang’ for their propensity to snatch fancy luxury cars at gunpoint and then carry out a loot. Such cars would then be sold off after changing their number plates.

The cops have written to the Ludhiana police asking for an inquiry of an inspector. Sources said,“One of the gang members Mandeep Singh alias Pistolia’s father is posted as head constable with this inspector and we need to get some things checked,for which we have requested the Ludhiana police.” Ludhiana DCP Ashish Chaudhry said,“As of now,we have not received anything in writing. The matter must be with the higher-ups and we will do as asked.”
