Asansol: Jharkhand Kulti police arrested two large interstate coal traders. They have been in police custody for 11 days. These two are Aman Singh and Salim Ansari aka Guddu. It is also known that there is a case of attempted murder against them in Dhanbad in Jharkhand. The home of these two is Taldanga in the Chirkunda area of Dhanbad district. Both were currently in Dhanbad prison.
Kulti police had previously questioned them in a coal theft case last January when going to Dhanbad jail. The Kulti police then applied to the court to arrest them. Based on that request, the Jharkhand police brought the two before the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Asansol, on Tuesday.
According to Kulti police sources, on January 16 this year, two trucks loaded with coal were seized from Duburdihi on National Highway No. 2. The driver did not have any documents for the coal. The police learned that they were being smuggled out of a hard coke factory in Gobindpur, Jharkhand. After investigating the incident, an Assistant Sub-Inspector or ASI from the Kulti Police went to the agency to issue a notice to the owners for questioning. They then caught him and severely beat him there. Police from Jharkhand’s Golferbari outpost got the information and went to the area and rescued the ASI. Later, the Kulti police repeatedly called them but they did not come. Police later learned that they were both being held in Dhanbad jail for a murder case. The police went there and questioned him. Then on Tuesday, police from the Kulti police station detained them for questioning in the coal recovery case. Separately, on the same day, the Kulti police arrested a person named Saroj Panja from Rupnarayanpur in another coal smuggling case. The judge denied him bail and ordered him to remain in police custody for three days.
