The Punjab police on Wednesday arrested another prime accused in the sensational Sukha Kahlon murder case from Amritsar International Airport. The accused Kulpreet Singh, a resident of Moga district, was taken into custody by Faridkot police after he landed at Amritsar on a flight from Dubai.
According to the sources, Kulpreet, following police pressure, had sent a copy of his air ticket on WhatsApp to a senior Punjab police official, investigating the case, following which a team of Faridkot police was waiting to arrest him at the Amritsar airport.
Faridkot Senior Superintendent of Police Charanjit Singh, when contacted, said interrogation of Kulpreet was on. He said that Kulpreet “owned as many as four transport trucks in Dubai”.
The SSP said Kulpreet, who had been living in Dubai, came to India on December 19, 2014. He was a party to those who killed gangster Sukha Kahlon on January 21 this year and then he flew back to Dubai on January 25, said the SSP.
Bathinda Zone Inspector General of Police Paramraj Singh Umranangal, when contacted, said, “Kulpreet in the past has been declared proclaimed offender in two other cases registered in Moga and Malout.” “Further investigations are on in the case,” Umranangal said.
Police have already arrested another prime accused in the case Gurpreet Sekhon, a resident of Mudki in Ferozepur district who came from an affluent family and wanted to replace Sukha as top gangster.
