Tribune News Service

Amritsar, June 12

The city police have arrested three youths for allegedly scuffling, misbehaving with cops and obstructing them from discharging their duty at a checkpoint near the Mall of Amritsar on the GT Road here on Tuesday. They have been identified as Gurpartap Singh, alias Dogar, Balraj Singh of Rajinder Nagaar and Simranjit Singh of Sant Avenue. Their fourth accomplice Ranjit Singh managed the flee.

Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Bhupinder Singh said he, along with other cops, had installed a checkpoint near the Mall of Amritsar. The accused came on scooters from wrong side so they were signalled to stop. He said the accused started using abusive language and tore his uniform.

They also damaged the glass of a car parked nearby. In the melee, he accidentally dropped his mobile phone and Simranjit Singh picked it up and tried to flee away, he alleged.

The police have registered a case under Section 353, 186, 427, 379 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against them.

He said raids were on to nab the one who was absconding. The police have also impounded two scooters of the accused.
