Cricketer Suresh Raina, on the 16th of September, extended gratitude to the Chief Minister of Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh Gill and the Punjab Police.
The Indian team cricketer thanked Amarinder Singh and the Punjab Police for the arrests of culprits in the case related to his relatives’ murder and burglary.
Suresh Raina took to Twitter and said, “This morning in Punjab, I met the investigating officers who reportedly have napped three criminals. I truly appreciate all their efforts. Our loss can’t be recovered but this will surely prevent further crimes to happen. Thank you @PunjabPoliceInd @capt_amarinder for all the help.”
The tweet of Suresh Raina thanking the Punjab Police and the State Government came after Captain Amarinder Singh confirmed the arrest of three members who were involved in the attack on Suresh Raina’s family.
The Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said three members of an inter-state gang have been arrested in the case.
The attack by robbers had taken place in Pathankot’s Tharyal village on the night of the 19 and 20th of August.
While the cricketer’s uncle died on the spot after sustaining head injuries, a 32-year-old cousin of Raina passed away at a private hospital later.
Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Dinkar Gupta said that the accused are a part of an inter-state gang of robber-criminals and added that eleven other members of the gang are yet to be arrested in the matter.
In regard to the attack on his family in Pathankot, Suresh Raina even pulled out of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) citing personal reasons.
