Ponty Chadha’s manager held on conspiracy charge

The security manager of slain liquor baron Gurdeep 'Ponty' Chadha, Narendra Ahlawat, was arrested by the Crime Branch on Thursday.

Police said Ahlawat was arrested on the charge of trespassing and criminal conspiracy to forcibly occupy farmhouse No 42 in Chhattarpur, where Ponty and his brother Hardeep Singh were killed in a gun battle on November 17. Ahlawat was injured in the shootout.

"Ahlawat was present at the spot on November 17 and was part of the conspiracy to forcibly occupy the said property," a police officer said.

According to police, Sukhdev Singh Namdhari, one of Ponty's associates and ex-chairman of the Uttarakhand Minorities Commission, had brought a number of armed men to assist Ponty Chadha in taking over the farmhouse.

Eight persons, including Namdhari and his gunman Sachin Tyagi, have been arrested in the case so far.
