Punjab gangster killed in encounter

The police team that killed the two men was led by Additional Inspector General (Intelligence) Gurmeet Chauhan and Inspector Bikramjit Brar.

Gounder, who had a reward of Rs 7 lakh from the Punjab Police and another from the Rajasthan Police, was using the social media as a tool to create terror and issue threats to rival gangs and police officers.

A resident of Sarawan Bodla village in ex-Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal's home ground Lumbi, Gounder was evading arrest since 2016, when he made sensational escape from maximum-security Nabha Central Jail in Punjab. The killed wanted gangster has been identified as 28-year-old Vicky Gounder, while his associate was Prema Lahoria.

He said acting on the information obtained from arrested criminals and technical inputs, police came to know about the movement of gangsters in five districts of Muktsar, Ferozepur, Abohar in Fazilka, Tarn Taran and Faridkot. He eluded capture despite police getting intelligence reports that he was mostly in Punjab after the jailbreak.

While Punjab Police rearrested four escapees in a few months, Gounder remained on the run. The daredevil murder of Sukha took place when the criminal was being taken to Nabha Jail after a court hearing.

While one team covered the house from the roof-top of the neighbouring house, another covered the rear boundary wall, and the third entered from the main gate, with the remaining teams covering the two other doors.

The Punjab Police said it managed to trace gangster Vicky Gounder, wanted in 10 cases of murder and gang-war, after a year-long manhunt. However, he was shot dead. "They were killed in retaliatory fire", he said.

Replying to questions, DGP Arora justified the need for a stringent law like PCOCA to effectively deal with criminals.
