Tribune News Service

Ambala, September 19

A couple of days after a team of the local Regional Transport Authority (RTA) led by Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Preeti was attacked reportedly by henchmen of the mining mafia on the Haryana-Punjab border near Panjokhra village of the district, the police on Saturday arrested four men.

The accused have been identified as Amrit Pal, Gurdev, Deepak of Ambala and Sachin of Mullana. Amrit and Sachin were taken on a two-day police remand, while the other two were not produced before a court, the police have said.

The accused have been booked for attempt to murder, assault, rioting, obstructing government officials from discharging their duty and criminal conspiracy.

While the ADC, who also holds the charge of the RTA Secretary, escaped unhurt, her official vehicle was damaged and one of her staff members sustained injuries.

“On Thursday, my team and I were patrolling the area, challaning overloaded vehicles. In the evening, when we nabbed a few violators on the inter-state border, they attacked us and fled towards Punjab,” the ADC said.

Deputy Commissioner Ashok Kumar Sharma said the district administration had tightened the noose around the mining mafia and all those involved in the attack on the ADC would be brought to book.

Recently, the ADC had lodged an FIR against the mining mafia for following her official vehicle and sharing the details of her location to those carrying out the illegal business.
