Murder-convict arrested 14 years after he jumped parole, was hiding in guise of a temple priest in Moga

In 2004, Satpal and his nine other accomplices were sentenced to life imprisonment in a murder case.

The Hush Post: Haryana police have arrested a murder convict from Moga in Punjab after 14 long years. Satpal alias Pala, a resident of village Alipur in Jind, was hiding in Moga under the guise of a priest in a local temple after jumping parole.

A Jind court had in 2004 sentenced Satpal and his nine other accomplices to life imprisonment for murdering a co-villager. Satpal had come out on parole for six weeks on November 5, 2004. He, however, jumped parole and was declared a proclaimed offender. The police had even announced a bounty on him.

The police had received a tip-off that Satpal was working as a priest in a temple in Punjab. Satpal was preaching devotion to people at the temple. A police team left for Moga and arrested Satpal from there.

The police produced Satpal before a local court in Narwana on Monday which sent him into judicial custody.
