A few hours after the murder, a post purported on a Facebook page of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who is currently in Rajasthan’s Ajmer Jail, linked the crime with the death of Bishnoi’s aide Gurlal Brar.

Delhi Police even raided his rented accommodation at Kharar but Gagan had inactivated all his communication channels and gave a slip before the raid as he got information about their arrest by the Delhi Police.

DGP Gupta said that based on specific inputs, teams of Organised Crime Control Unit (OCCU) and Counter Intelligence Units of Punjab Police were tasked for arresting the accused under the supervision of Additional DGP (ADGP) Internal Security RN Dhoke.

On the instructions of Goldy Brar, Gagan handed over a bagful of arms and ammunition to an unknown person near First Bite Pizza in Kharar, a day before the murder. This bag was brought by Gora and kept in the wardrobe of his room.

After Delhi Police raided his rented accommodation, he took shelter in a friend’s flat in Kharar for the next two days and then went to the Golden Temple Amritsar; from there he went to McLeod Ganj and then reached Kasol in Himachal Pradesh.
