A Swift Dzire auto with fake number plate was recovered from the house.

Two policemen also suffered injuries in the encounter at a "dhani" (a small conglomeration of houses) near Pakki village - just 50 metres from Punjab border in Rajasthan, Director General of Police (Intelligence), Punjab Police, Dinkar Gupta said in Chandigarh.

Dinkar said Gounder, also known as Harjinder Singh, was a proclaimed offender wanted in 10 cases of murder and gangwar, and was using multiple Facebook accounts. He eluded capture despite police getting intelligence reports that he was mostly in Punjab after the jailbreak. He is the prime accused in the killing of gangster Sukha Kahlwan.

Gounder became a sensation when he escaped from the maximum-security Nabha Central Jail in Punjab along with five other prisoners in November 2016. Gounder was wanted in several cases of murder and decoitee in Punjab and neighbouring states.

After the encounter, Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh tweeted a congratulatory message to the police. OCCU IG Nilabh Kishore confirmed the killing of the gangsters and said that more information is being collected. On January 24, an OCCU advisory was issued listing out five districts reporting possible movement of the gangsters and additional forces were sent out there. In Friday's encounter a notorious criminal was injured while another was arrested, police said. The team started doing reccee of the area, and checking their suspected hideouts and associates.

The most-wanted "A" category gangster, who was killed in an encounter yesterday, was being probed for his possible links with militant or radical elements as well as Pakistan's ISI, they said. He continued to dodge the police after his escape from Nabha jail alongwith six other gangsters and a terrorist. The cops retaliated. While Vicky and Prema were shot dead, another man was injured.

Some police sources have identified the third man as gangster Sukhpreet Singh, but AIG Chauhan, who was present at the press conference, said police were yet to identify him.

Replying to questions, DGP Arora justified the need for a stringent law like PCOCA to effectively deal with criminals.
