Punjab: Murder accused held from Telangana after 1,900km chase | Chandigarh News


KAPURTHALA: Cracking the murder of a 23-year-old man of Begowal, Kapurthala police have arrested an accused after a 1,900-km-long chase of 20 days across six states. Kapurthala SSP H P S Khakh said accused Daljit Singh Shera, a resident of Kartarpur, Jalandhar, was caught in Cyberabad in Telangana.
The cop said, “On the evening of June 18, the accused, along with his associates, had shot dead Mukul when he was returning home from a playground. The accused suspected Mukul’s involvement in the murder of their gang member.”
Police had registered a case against four persons on the statement of the victim’s father. Daljit took responsibility for the murder and also wrote a post on his Facebook account.
“Police teams were chasing the accused since the day of the murder, but Daljit was constantly changing his hideouts in different states like Haryana, UP, Bihar, Maharashtra and Odisha. He was finally traced to Telangana. The car he had robed from a pastor in Tanda was later recovered from Maharashtra as the accused had left it there after the vehicle developed a snag,” the SSP added.
On June 29, the police teams were on the way to raid his hideout in Telangana when they learned that Daljit tried to rob some girls of cellphones at gunpoint. The scared girls dialed 100 after running towards the main road, following which Gachibowli police reached the spot.
The SSP said the police teams arrested him there and brought him back to Punjab on Friday. The weapons used in the murder of Mukul have also been seized by the Telangana police. “We are on the lookout for other three accused,” the cop added.
