SAMBA, Nov 29: In a significant development, Samba Police has apprehended the fourth accused linked to the LPG gas pilferage case, as per the recently registered FIR (No. 274/2023) at Police Station Samba through Police Post Supwal. Identified as Parveen Singh alias Baghu, son of Gulzar Singh, and a resident of Malwam tehsil Marheen district Kathua, the accused faces charges under various sections, including 3/7 EC Act, 406, 409, 120-B, 285, and 413 IPC.
The arrest follows the diligent efforts of the police, which began on the intervening night of November 15th and 16th, 2023. Two suspects were apprehended red-handed while extracting gas from two Indane Gas Tankers and transferring it to commercial cylinders at midnight in Village Chhajwal Barian. Subsequently, a third accused was arrested on November 19th in connection with the same case.
The latest arrest pertains to the driver of one Indane Gas Tanker who had initially fled upon observing the police raid. However, the driver of the second Indane Gas Tanker remains at large, prompting ongoing police efforts to locate and apprehend him.
The investigation, led by SHO Police Station Samba Inspector Daljit Singh and Chowki Officer Supwal Deepika Jalotra, is under the vigilant supervision of DySP Hqrs. Samba Bhishm Dubey and Additional SP Samba Surinder Choudhary. Senior Superintendent of Police Samba, Benam Tosh, affirmed the commitment of the police force to bring all those involved in the pilferage and breach of trust to justice. Raids are being conducted at suspected locations to ensure the arrest of any remaining suspects.
Initial findings suggest that the gas pilferage from Indane gas tankers had been ongoing for over four months at the same location during midnight hours. The accused targeted Indane gas tankers traveling from Punjab to the Indane LPG Bottling Plant in Bari Brahmana, Samba, consistently choosing the same location, i.e., Chhajwal Barian, Supwal Samba, for their illicit activities.
SSP Benam Tosh affirmed that the police will leave no stone unturned in ensuring the arrest of all individuals involved in the pilferage and breach of trust. The commitment to upholding the law and safeguarding public trust remains unwavering. Investigations continue as more suspects are being questioned in connection to the case.
