Two revolvers, 3 cell phones recovered from accused

Jalandhar April 26:

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Rajpal Singh Sandhu said here that they had recovered a .32 bore revolver from the possession of Akali councillor Ram Simran Singh Makkar, alias Prince, the prime accused in the murder of hotelier Gurkirat Singh Sekhon. Prince is a nephew of SAD legislator Sarabjit Singh Makkar.

“Another .22 bore revolver was recovered from Amardeep Singh, alias Sunny Sachdeva, son of advocate Manmohan Singh Sachdeva,” he said. The two had concealed the weapons in their houses. Sandhu said they had also recovered the cell phones of Prince Makkar, Sunny Sachdeva and Prince Narula, son of MGN Educational Trust chairman Gurinder Singh Narula. “We have sent the weapons and cell phones of the accused to forensic experts,” the officer said.

On Sunday, the police had recorded the statement of Jasdeep Singh Jassu, son of the owner of hotel Regent Park, Arvinder Singh, and recovered the Skoda car used in the crime (PB08V 0505) and his cell phone. Official sources said the police was trying to get the call details of the four accused to ascertain if the murder was pre-planned. Earlier in the day, Congress leader Pratap Singh Bajwa met the father of the deceased, Rajbir Singh Sekhon, and assured justice to the family.

Gikki, owner of hotel Sekhon Grand, was murdered on April 21 midnight outside an eatery in the posh Model Town locality of the city. He was allegedly shot dead by his childhood Prince after an altercation. The accused have been remanded to police custody till April 27. Yesterday, Jalandhar citizens had held a candlelight march to express solidarity with the victim’s family. They gathered at Desh Bhagat Yadgaar Hall and expressed sympathy with Gurkirat’s family. Sunny Sachdeva was hospitalised in evening after he complained of a bleeding nose. “We took him to the Civil Hospital where doctors found that his blood pressure had shot up,” said a police official. After medication, he was brought to the police station.
