The car used by the accused was recovered along with a few incriminatory materials, he added. Police said the background of the accused is being ascertained and efforts are on to arrest Avtar. SP said that following certain inputs about anti-social elements, various wings of the district police were on alert.

A police control room (PCR) team led by Jaskaran Singh spotted two car-borne persons suspected to be involved in narcotic smuggling near a hotel. When they were signalled to stop, they started firing at the cops. “While trying to flee, the accused first hit the police patrol vehicle and then rammed into a scooter. Police managed to arrest one accused and seized the car. Initial probe suggests, Sukhdeep was under the influence of narcotics and he will be subjected to the dope test,” added the SP.
