BOKAJAN: Kanwaldeep Singh Sindhu, one of the key suspects in connection with a kidnapping case in Guwahati, succumbed to bullet injury while trying to flee from police custody on Friday. Sindhu was arrested from the Purna Laharijan area of Assam-Nagaland inter-State border by a team of Guwahati Police lead by ACP Prithwiraj Rajkhowa, Panbazaar. Karbi Anglong police also assisted in his arrest.

The incident occurred on the NH-36 along the Daldali Reserve Forest, when Kanwaldeep Singh reportedly snatched a service pistol of a police officer while being taken to Diphu for transit remand. Firing a shot, Sindhu jumped out of the vehicle and tried to flee inside the forest. The police then fired in retaliation and Sindhu was severely injured with multiple bullet shots. Sindhu was declared brought dead in the hospital.

Sindhu was the prime accused in the kidnapping of Ajit Das, a lessee of Guwahati Railway Station parking who was abducted from his home in the Kalibari neighbourhood near Guwahati Railway Station on June 23. Das was, however, rescued on June 28. A total of six people have been detained by police in connection with the case. Earlier, a constable of Fancy Bazaar police outpost, arrested in connection with the case, was also shot at while trying to flee from police custody in Guwahati.

Sindhu was an inspector in the Railways Protection Special Force and was undergoing suspension since 2013. He was allegedly involved in a series of criminal activities, including kidnapping, illegal firearm smuggling and drug trafficking, during his service period.
