JALANDHAR: Gangster Dalbir Singh, known as Dalbeera, hailing from Basti Bawa Khel in Jalandhar, has been brought back to Punjab from Delhi under a police production warrant. Close to the incarcerated gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, Dalbeera was presented in court by the CIA staff of Jalandhar Commissionerate Police, subsequently remanded into police custody for four days. His involvement in the plot to assassinate Jalandhar Congress councilor Sukhmeet Singh, also known as Deputy, has come to the forefront.
Dalbeera played a pivotal role in supplying weapons to Puneet and his associates, who carried out the fatal attack on 'Deputy'. Law enforcement authorities suspect that the weapons used in the Deputy's assassination are still in Dalbeera's possession, hidden away. During his remand, the police intend to unravel the whereabouts of these weapons while also interrogating other individuals implicated in the murder.
Having formed a close association with notorious gangster Lawrence during his incarceration in Amritsar Jail, Dalbeera has accumulated a staggering 28 criminal cases registered against him in various police jurisdictions. These cases encompass charges of murder, attempted murder, robbery, and the illegal distribution of firearms.
Notably, Dalbeera had been evading law enforcement in connection with all these cases and was reportedly planning to flee the country. The Punjab Police had been tracking his movements, leading to the issuance of a Lookout Circular (LoC). As soon as Dalbeera arrived at Delhi's airport, security agencies on-site identified him and apprehended him. Subsequently, the airport security agency handed him over to the Delhi Police, who, in turn, produced him in Punjab under a production warrant for further legal proceedings.
