Asked to comment on the handing over the probe of RSS leader’s killing in Ludhiana to National Investigative Agency (NIA), the DGP said that this would help in unifying the investigation being carried out by the security agencies. He said that under the NIA all the security agencies would make a concerted effort to ensure that the perpetrators of this crime were brought to the book. Arora said that the idea behind handing over the case to NIA was to hatch the bigger conspiracy behind this killing.

The DGP said that the Punjab Police would extend fulsome support and cooperation to the premier investigative agency for probing the matter. He said that the initial investigations in this case has revealed that the modus operandi of this case was different from that of murder of Mata Chand Kaur of Namdhari sect but was similar to killing of RSS leader at Jalandhar and Pastor’s killing in Ludhiana.
