A gang takes responsibility for the murder of Middukhera.
Following a few good leads, Mansa police arrested two criminals, Manpreet Singh Manna and Siraj Sandhu, from the Ferozepur Central Jail and Bathinda Central Jail.
Last year, Manna, a distant relative of Bhau, assassinated another criminal, Kulveer Singh Caruana, and his accomplice Chamkaur Singh.
