Hooch suspect’s property frozen

Amritsar, January 1

The Tarn Taran police have frozen the property of bootlegger and drug peddler Rashpal Singh, alias Shalu, (38) of Dhotian village falling under the Sarhali police station.

He is one of the prime suspects in the hooch tragedy case last year. In all, 125 persons from Majha died. A majority of the victims was from Tarn Taran, Amritsar and Batala.

SSP Dhrman H Nimbale said the police received the orders of freezing Rashpal's properties worth Rs 1.6 crore from the competent authority. He said the police had confiscated over 200 gm heroin and 150 gm intoxicant powder from him in November 2014. A house is among the frozen properties.

He said Rashpal and his brother Gurpal were booked for hooch tragedy. — TNS
