4 Ponty men held, police say gunfight lasted 20 minutes


According to Khan, there are 14 cases registered against Namdhari in the state. Of these, two criminal cases — dacoity and attempt to murder — are pending in the court, the release said.

The government said the fact that Namdhari was at the farmhouse at the time of the shootout makes his "integrity more doubtful".

Namdhari came close to liquor baron Ponty about a decade ago due to the latter's growing interest in mining business in the state. He was appointed chairman in March 2010.
