On Wednesday the Chief Minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh said that they have captured three members of an inter-state gang for brutally murdering relatives of Raina. Efforts are being made to arrest other 11 members of the group as well.
This morning in Punjab,I met the investigating officers who reportedly have napped three criminals. I truly appreciate all their efforts. Our loss can’t be recovered but this will surely prevent further crimes to happen. Thank you @PunjabPoliceInd @capt_amarinder for all the help

Raina’s uncle Ashok Kumar was killed on the night of 19th August by the gang in Tharyal village of Pathankot district. The son of Ashok also died on 31st August after receiving brutal injuries. Raina’s Aunt and wife of Ashok was on life support and was injured critically. Soon after this shocking incident, Amarinder Singh ordered the Special Investigation Team which was led by IGP Border Range Amritsar to investigate this case. SIT later summoned more tha 100 suspects for investigation purpose.
Till date we don’t know what exactly had happened that night & who did this. I request @PunjabPoliceInd to look into this matter. We at least deserve to know who did this heinous act to them. Those criminals should not be spared to commit more crimes. @capt_amarinder @CMOPb

On 15th September, SIT received the information that the three suspects have been seen on the Defence Road on the morning. All the three suspects were staying near Pathankot railway station. All the three suspects were arrested after a successful raid. The Police told that this gang has been involved in similar crimes in UP, Jammu and Kashmir and in different parts of Punjab. After killing Ashok and injuring his son and wife severely they rushed to the city’s railway station and dispersed into different directions after dividing the looted cash as well as jewelry.
