Punjab's most wanted gangster shot dead

He is also known to often taunt the police about how they wouldn't be able to get hold of him on social networking site Facebook.

The encounter is said to have lasted for more than an hour and "Lahoria was killed when he was trying to escape by jumping the boundary wall".

The three were hiding in a Dhani, a small conglomeration of houses in fields, owned by another criminal Lakhwinder Singh Lakha who was arrested. The killed wanted gangster has been identified as 28-year-old Vicky Gounder, while his associate was Prema Lahoria.

Sub Inspector Baljinder Singh and ASI Kirpal Singh were injured in the operation. "We have already said that we will kill two (cops) for every person (gang member) killed by police, and will avenge Gounder and other two's killing by killing six", said the post in Punjabi.

Gounder was evading arrest since November 2016 when he made a sensational escape from the maximum-security Nabha Central Jail in Punjab along with five other prisoners, including two terrorists.

Till April a year ago, Gounder was active in Punjab's Majha region, where he shot dead three members of a rival gang in Gurdaspur.On Friday, the Punjab Police shot dead Gounder and his aide Prem Lahoriya in an encounter in a village near Muktsar at Punjab-Rajasthan border. A police team surrounded the house where Vicky was hiding with his accomplices.
