Fatehgarh Sahib April 20:
The district police has busted a gang of cheats involved in forging documents to get bails for accused in various cases from the judicial courts.
According to SSP Dr Kaustubh Sharma, the gang was busted by SP (detective) Shamsher Singh Boparai and his team. The SSP said the gang, whose members included a woman, used to forge documents to bail out accused in any given case. Later, the accused used to go underground and become proclaimed offenders.
The police chief said the Mullenpur police had received vital information about the gang from one of the local patwaris. Acting on the tip-off, the police raided a number of places and arrested kingpin of the gang Jagtar Singh. The other two members of the gang have been identified as Narinder Singh and Sheela Devi, who are yet to be arrested. The SSP said efforts to detain the other two culprits had been stepped up.
The SSP said the gang was active in this area for quite sometime and had forged documents for a number of criminals. He said the police was further investigating the matter to ascertain whether the gang had been helping criminals in other parts of the state also. Meanwhile, a case under Sections 420, 467 and 468 of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the three accused at the Fatehgarh Sahib police station.
