Shock, petition to transfer gangster Lawrence’s kingpin Deepu to Burail jail rejected

Chandigarh : The district court on Thursday rejected the application of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi’s mastermind Deepak alias Deepu to be transferred to Chandigarh’s Burail Jail. The petition was filed by the Superintendent of Patiala Central Jail in the Chandigarh District Court citing security reasons. While Deepu’s lawyer has told the reason for the dismissal of the petition is the threat to his life in Burail Jail. In such a situation, Deepak will remain in Patiala Jail. Deepu has cases registered against him in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh for murder, attempt to murder, dacoity, Arms Act etc.

Deepu is an accused of Chandigarh Police in the case of shooting on 31 May 2020 at the house of Arvind Singla, the liquor baron of Sector-33. While in the case of demanding ransom from a businessman of the city, he was brought from Patiala jail for production. A Chandigarh court had ordered Deepu to appear for the hearing in an extortion case filed in March. Sector-26 police station has registered a case against Deepu. According to the police, Deepu is associated with the gang of Canadian gangsters Lawrence, Sampat Nehra and Goldie Brar.

The Superintendent of Patiala Jail had said in the petition that cases were registered against Deepu in Chandigarh, Kurukshetra, Panchkula, Ambala, Mohali and Derabassi. Due to shortage of guards in Patiala District Police, it is becoming difficult to present him in various courts. He should be transferred to Burail Jail. In protest, Deepu’s lawyer said that his life is in danger in Burail jail.
