NAKODAR: The Nakodar city police are yet to arrest three persons who have been on the run for 19 years. They had allegedly murdered a local jeweler Mimik. Janak Raj, who was employed at the jewelry shop of the victim’s grandfather at Sarafan Bazar, along with his accomplices Rajesh and Sonu were declared proclaimed offenders (POs). The trial court has, however, acquitted one of their accomplices.

Janak had a scuffle with Mimik and his father in January 2002 after which Janak and his accomplices attacked them with knives. Mimik was declared brought dead at a hospital. Nakodar city SHO Jatindar Kumar said they had not been successful in arresting other accused in the case.
