The Hush Post: The Patiala Police made a big breakthrough today when it arrested an accomplice of Vicky Gounder, the kingpin of the Nabha jail break case, from the Delhi international airport. Inder Sandhu, who helped Vicky Gounder and other criminals escape from the Patiala jail, was trying to flee the country. He had come from Jordan to India on a fake passport in the name of Gurjant Sandhu. He has been taken to Patiala and the Patiala police has also obtained a 3-day remand from the court. Sandhu’s arrest would help Patiala police in inching closer to Harjinder Singh Bhullar alias Vicky Gounder who has been on the run since November after he fled the Nabha high-security jail and continues to dodge the police. The police has narrowly missed him no three different occasions in Yamunanagar, Mansa and Gurdaspur. Will Sandhu’s arrest be the final nail in the coffin needs to be seen.
Gounder, a resident of Sarawan Bodla village of Muktsar, belongs to a gang formed by another history-sheeter Jaipal Singh. Gounder shot to limelight in January 2015 when his name cropped up as the prime suspect in the murder of rival gangster Sukha Kahlwan. Gounder and his accomplices filmed the act and danced around Kahlwan’s body in front of policemen. Kahlwan was killed in Phagwara when six cops were taking him back to the Nabha jail in a jeep after a court hearing in Jalandhar. Gounder is wanted in at least 15 cases of murder, kidnapping and robbery.
