Suresh Raina Family Attack: 3 Arrested For Murder Of Suresh Raina's Relatives, Case Solved - Punjab
Three members of the gang that murdered members of cricketer Suresh Raina's family in Punjab's Pathankot last month, during a reported robbery, have been arrested, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said Wednesday, as he declared the case "solved".
Punjab DGP Dinkar Gupta said the accused were part of an inter-state gang of robber-criminals and that 11 other members of that gang, one of whom has already been identified were on the run. Efforts are being made to capture them as well, the senior cop added.
According to Mr Gupta the SIT (Special Investigation Team) probing the case received a tip earlier this week that the three arrested suspects were holed up in slum dwellings near the Pathankot Railway Station. The police raid that followed recovered two wooden sticks (presumably used as weapons), two gold rings and cash worth Rs 1,530.
The accused told the police they were part of a gang that had committed similar crimes across parts of Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and even Jammu and Kashmir. They said they jumped from one location to another by following landmarks such as canals and railway lines.
