According to police, an incident of a quarrel took place between two parties on January 7 at around 7:30 p.m. in the Samaipur Badli area, over a minor issue.

During the quarrel, Gurpreet Singh was brutally killed by five individuals, Amarjeet, Sagar, Tapsi, Billu, and Ravindra, alias Ravi.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime), Sanjay Bhatia, said that, in light of the incident and to apprehend Amarjeet, technical surveillance was intensified, and a police team was formed.

The team gathered information and located Amarjeet’s hideout in the village of Naurangabad, District Tarn Taran, Punjab.

“Amarjeet’s mobile phone was switched off, and based on technical analysis, it was revealed that he was using a new mobile number for online payments to meet his daily requirements,” said the additional CP.

Subsequently, through regular data analysis, it was discovered that the location of the accused Manga was in the village of Naurangabad. “Accordingly, a raid was conducted, and the accused was apprehended from a room near a tubewell in the village fields,” said Bhatia.

“Upon hearing the commotion of the crowd, he came out and observed that his friends were in a confrontation with a family. This angered him, as he already had a rivalry with that family.
