Gangster admits killing of Amritsar Hindu outfit leader on Facebook

Absconding gangster Saraj Sandhu, in a post on a social media website, Facebook on November 13 claimed to have killed the Hindu Sangharsh Sena leader Vipan Sharma in Amritsar on October 30, reports The Times of India. The Punjab Police had not included Vipan Sharma's murder in the list of targeted killings of religious leaders in the State which they had solved a week ago by busting a terror module managed by Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) agency. Saraj Sandhu, who is main accused in the Amritsar case, has been on the run after the murder. He allegedly also posted on his Facebook account on November 13 that the ‘killing should not be linked with any religion.’ "I want to tell my friends that the murder of Vipan Sharma which took place on October 30 on Amritsar-Batala road was committed by me," Sandhu allegedly admitted in his Facebook post, which has now been deleted. The incident comes just days after a Punjab gangster-turned-activist uploaded a Facebook video from Faridkot jail.

Amritsar Deputy Commissioner of Police (investigation) Jagmohan Singh, said, "I do not believe that the gangster Saraj Sandhu had himself put this post on his Facebook account. It seems to have been done by someone else. But we are investigating the case." It is learnt that the Amritsar Police have brought Monday's (November 13) incident into the knowledge of its cyber-crime cell so as to ascertain as to who is behind the Facebook post.
