Jalandhar: The local police have put up a Check Post outside the residence of slain Punjab RSS leader Brigadier Jagdish Gagneja (retd), hence ensuring 24X7 security to the family.
The check post has been stationed opposite the house of Brig Gagneja, where a heavy posse of police was deployed in the area. Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Harjit Singh said that the check post was stationed to ensure round the clock security. “This was part of security measure that the check post was put up”, he said.
Sources maintained that post the attack on Gagneja and the subsequent killing, the police was keeping a hawk’s eye on any suspicious movement in the area and thwart any untoward incident. Meanwhile, an additional heavy posse of police was stationed outside the house of Brig Gagneja, as VIPs have been reaching out to the family to offer condolences.
It is pertinent to mention here that a week ago before the attack on Gagneja took place on August 6, he was offered security by the Commissionerate police, which he has refused. Brig Gagneja died on September 22, after remaining under treatment for over a month and a half in a hospital in Ludhiana.
