Police said at a press briefing on Friday that they arrested Gurlal Singh alias Lalli Sidana from his in-laws’ village Lehra Dhurkot on Thursday evening. Bathinda Superintendent of Police Nanak Singh said: “CIA Staff 2 Incharge SI Tarjinder Singh got a secret tip off that gangster Lalli Sidana is coming to his in-laws village, acting on which CIA team laid a trap and he was arrested”.

They also found a 9mm country-made pistol along with 12 live rounds, one 32-bore revolver along with 32 live rounds, one country-made 32 bore pistol with 6 live rounds, one 12 bore gun with 22 live rounds, 16 live rounds of 315 bore and 22 live rounds of 455 rounds.
