Investigators probing the shootout at the Chhattarpur farmhouse, in which Ponty Chaddha and his younger brother Hardeep were killed, are looking at the role of former Uttarakhand Minorities Commission Chairman Sukhdev Singh Namdhari.
Police on Thursday claimed that Namdhari's men could have aided the liquor baron's aides in taking control of the farmhouse hours before the killings.
Prior to the gun battle on November 17, Ponty's men had allegedly entered the farmhouse, fired in air and snatched the mobile phones from Hardeep's staff before throwing them out.
"Witnesses have given statements where they claim Namdhari's men were also part of the group that trespassed into the Chhattarpur farmhouse. We are verifying those statements" Joint Commissioner of Police (Southwest) Vivek Gogia said.
