In a significant operation, Mumbai police apprehended two notorious gangsters from Punjab early on Wednesday morning. The individuals, identified as Pancham Noor Singh (32) and Himanshu Mata (30), were nabbed in Vinoba Bhave Nagar, Kurla area, based on specific information received by the Mumbai crime branch.
Both Singh and Mata, residents of Jalandhar in Punjab, were wanted in connection with 11 cases, including serious offenses like attempted murder, kidnapping, firing incidents, and spreading terror.
The Mumbai Police, acting swiftly on the provided information, laid a trap in a hotel where the suspects were staying and successfully arrested them. The duo's arrest was a result of their alleged involvement in a string of criminal activities, making them high-priority targets for law enforcement agencies.
A police official stated that both of them are residents of Jalandhar in Punjab and involved in 11 cases, including offences such as attempt to murder, kidnapping, firing, and creating terror. The nature of their crimes suggests a significant threat to public safety, prompting swift action by the Mumbai Police.
Authorities have wasted no time in co-ordinating efforts between states. The Mumbai Police have already informed their counterparts in Punjab about the successful arrests. As part of the legal process, both Singh and Mata will be handed over to the Punjab Police later in the day. This inter-state collaboration highlights the effectiveness of timely information sharing and swift action by law enforcement agencies in tackling organised crime.
