Jaipur: Rajasthan anti-terrorist squad (ATS) and Sikar police have arrested five criminals including Ajay Chaudhary, Jagdish Dhankar and Rampal Choudhary in connection with the firing that led to the death of Fatehpur SHO Mukesh Kanungo and constable Ramprakash in Fatehpur town of Sikar district last week.

Ajay and Jagdeep were arrested from Mumbai, while three others were held from Pune, according to preliminary reports. Those arrested include two criminals who provided shelter to Ajay Choudhary and Jagdeep after the duo escaped from Sikar.

The Rajasthan ATS is yet to make an official announcement about the arrests, but the sources said that the criminals were being brought to Rajasthan.

There had been many rumours since Mukesh Kanungo and Ramprakash were murdered in a daredevil firing. There were reports of Ajay Choudhary’s police encounter. The police had to ban the internet in order to prevent spread of these rumours and make it harder for criminals to communicate among themselves using social media platforms such as WhatsApp.

SHO Mukesh Kanungo and constable Ramprakash were shot dead by criminals in Fatehpur town of Sikar district on Saturday night.

Fatehpur Kotwal Mukesh received a tip-off that Ajay Choudhary and Jagdeep Dhakar were in the area. The SHO launched a search for the duo.

A car was intercepted. The police team started searching the vehicle, but the criminals suddenly opened fire. Bullets pierced Mukesh Kanungo’s neck. Constable Ramprakash sustained bullet injuries on this chest. Both were rushed to a hospital where they died while undergoing treatment.
