While Vicky Gounder was the most wanted gangster of the Punjab police, his aide Prema Lahoria was accused of escaping from the high-security jail in Punjab's Nabha district.

After receiving the input the police team surrounded the house, but the gangsters got to know of the police presence and opened fire. We hunted them down today.

Highly hailing the Punjab police cops for giving an end to Gangster's era in Punjab, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has congratulated the Punjab police.

It is said that Vicky Gounder was shot twice and is further claimed by the police that they both fired over a dozen rounds at the police.

The police said the area where the three were hiding was hardly 50 meters from Punjab's border.

The encounter was carried out by organised crime control unit (OCCU) of Punjab police.

While he was wanted in about 15 cases of kidnapping, murder and robbery in the northern states, he shot to fame in 2015, when he killed Sukha Kahlwan, a rival. At least 26 people who were members of his gang were arrested in connection with helping the criminal and his five other aides escape.

Sources have informed that the dead bodies of Vicky Gounder and Prema Lahoria have been kept in Civil Hospital of Abohar.

Two pistols of.32 bore and one pistol of 0.30 bore, and a large quantity of ammunition along with an ammunition belt were recovered from the possession of the gangsters, along with mobile phones and dongles, used for communication through social media.
