Two sharpshooters, Ramandeep Singh and Hardeep Shera, who are said to be behind the killing of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh’s (RSS) leader Ravinder Gosain in Ludhiana, were sent to the five-day custody of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday.
RSS leader Ravinder Gosain was killed on October 17 in broad daylight by what the agency believes is Sikh extremist.
A senior officer told India today, “The two shooters were hired to do the hit job. We want to know on whose command the two were acting.”
NIA IG Mukesh Singh is overseeing probe in the case. NIA will also probe foreign hand in the gruesome murder and the terror group that is operating with support from European countries like UK, Germany and even Canada.
The Gosain’s ruthless murder has brought into focus the killing of RSS Punjab coordinator and Jalandhar unit President, Brigadier Jagdish Gagneja, who was shot dead in a similar fashion by an unknown assailant on the bike last year. The case which is being probed by CBI remains unsolved till date.
Sources have already hinted at systematic killing in the Punjab. This is the third such killing since Captain Amarinder Singh took reigns of the state in March this year. Singh later demanded an NIA probe. After MHA’s nod, the agency took over the case last week.
