CHANDIGARH: Three gangsters allegedly committed suicide at Asakhera village in Sirsa district of Haryana on Tuesday morning after they were cornered by Punjab police at their hide-out in Haryana.
While two of the gangsters shot themselves in the heads, it is not clear how the third gangster killed himself.

On a tip-off, the gangsters were traced to a hide-out and surrounded by the police teams early morning. Superintendent of Police of Sirsa, Satender Kumar Gupta said, “Police parties from Punjab and Haryana were chasing them and had cornered them. The gangsters committed suicide after finding themselves cornered by police. They were hiding at the house of Massi of Sharni, another gangster in jail. They had murdered the brother and nephew of Chamkaur Singh, another gangster at Jaitu in 2014, besides killing one person at Jaitu.’’

On being cornered, the gangsters fired several rounds at the police parties before committing suicide, Faridkot SSP, Nanak Singh, said. He said gangsters Bunty Dhillon and Jaspreet Singh alias Jumpy of Faridkot district and Nishan Singh committed suicide.

 “While Bunty and Jaspreet died on the spot, Nishan Singh was declared brought dead in a hospital,” Singh said.

Sirsa SP, Satender Kumar Gupta said the Haryana police team coordinated with their Punjab counterparts in the entire operation.

Nanak Singh said Bunty and Jaspreet were dreaded gangsters of the Devinder shooter gang. Their involvement with the Vicky Gounder gang lately also came to the fore, he said, adding the trio had multiple FIRs registered against them in various police stations.

They were also involved in a shootout incident at Poanta Sahib and Tarn Taran, besides many other murder cases, and other heinous crimes.

Sources said that five weapons and a Scorpio vehicle were recovered. It was the same vehicle which was used in the Paonta Sahib shoot-out.
