Ludhiana, July 20, 2017: Even though a team, led by Commissioner of Police RN Dhoke, has been working overnight to get some clue to the killing of Pastor Sultan Masih, sources said SIT had got nothing conclusive about the assailants.

Masih, the pastor at the Slem Tabri church in Ludhiana, was shot dead by two unidentified men on a motorcycle on July 15 night.

The special investigation team is headed by DCP-Crime Gagan Ajit Singh.

“Till the time we don’t have information about the entry and exist routes of the assailants, our probe is not going even a step further. We also don’t have clue about the motive of the killers which is also stopping the probe from moving further. Despite having scanned CCTV footage of dozens of cameras, we are not having any clue to the bike-borne assailants’ entry or exit route. We only have footage of a CCTV camera installed on the church, which is hazy,” said a senior police official while talking to Ludhiana Tribune.

When DGP Suresh Arora visited the spot, he also hinted at not having any clue about the assailants. He had just hinted that the police were exploring the angle of terrorist attack in the case.

The sources said the police were also not yet clear about the bike the killers were riding. So far, the police were relying only on the eyewitness account by two children who said the assailants were on a Pulsar.

The source said apart from exploring other angles, the police had also been exploring the angle of personal enmity. “We are digging deep into the personal profile of the pastor to know if he ever had any scuffle or enmity with anyone over some religious issue or anything else.
