After a 15-month-long investigation, now taking cognizance of the case on behalf of the newly appointed SSP Raj Bachan Singh Sandhu of the District Rural Police, the investigation was handed over to Inspector Hira Singh, in-charge of the Economic Offenses Wing. After this, a case has been registered against Piru under sections 420 and 406 on Sunday. However, on July 16, 2020, a complaint was lodged against Piru in various police stations in the urban and rural areas of district Ludhiana for duping about 150 youths.

The first action has been taken on the complaint of only 34 victims 15 months after the incident. In the case registered on the complaint of victim Chanan Singh Vasi Falewal in Jodha police station, the matter of cheating 34 victims of about 28 lakh rupees has come to the fore. Although many cases are registered against Piru in different states, but this is the second case registered against him in Punjab.

It is worth noting that earlier, on June 20, 2020, a case of cheating of Rs 12.50 lakh was registered against Piru and his wife Mandeep Kaur on the complaint of Manjit Singh of Tarn Taran in Ludhiana’s police station Ladowal. Piru is currently imprisoned in the Aligarh Central Jail of Uttar Pradesh. On August 4, 2020, a case was registered against him in the name of army recruitment in Aligarh’s police station Iglas.

Piru was arrested by the UP Police on August 10, 2020, after a blockade near village Bhilpur. A case of cheating of seven and a half lakh rupees was registered against Piru on the complaint of Ramesh Kumar of village Kundwara in Iglas police station of UP Aligarh. Since then Piru is lodged in Aligarh Central Jail.

On July 16, 2020, at 1 pm, there was a stir when around 150 youths in army uniform reached the main gate of Air Force Station Halwara. When the Air Force security forces immediately took over the front, all the youths started running away. With the help of the reform police, about 10 uniformed youths were caught and brought to the police station, when everyone was shocked to hear their truth. Piru had called all these youths to Air Force Station Halwara by giving fake appointment letters and uniforms for recruitment in the Army and Air Force. Piru had assured these youths that they would be airlifted from Halwara station to their place of posting. Piru did not reach the scheduled time and date and fled.

Amar Ujala had prominently published this news on July 17, after which the government also swung into action. Amar Ujala had disclosed on 18 July that Thug Piru, recruited in the Army’s 152 TA Battalion in 2002 in the name of Sarwan Singh, was dismissed from the Army in 2016. The real name of the thug who was recruited in the army on the certificate of his brother Sarwan Singh and in his name is Pradeep Singh Piru. Till 2016 Piru continued to work in the name of his brother. The woman of Jeevanpur village of Patiala has also been an ally of Piru in this whole illusion.
