Former chairman of the Uttarakhand Minorities Commission Sukhdev Singh Namdhari's son, uncle and driver are absconding, police said on Tuesday.
Pertinently, Namdhari has been arrested in connection to the shootout that killed liquor baron Ponty Chadha and his brother Hardeep.
The police said they want to question all the three absconding people and are searching for them.
Namdhari´s driver might have tampered with the gun that the former chairman of the Uttarakhand Minorities Commission allegedly used to shoot Hardeep during the shootout on Nov 17, the police said.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday expelled Namdhari following his arrest in connection to he incident.
A Delhi court on Saturday sent Namdhari to five-day police custody in connection with the shootout that killed Ponty and Hardeep.
The Delhi Police told the court that the small-time BJP leader was the main conspirator in the shootout at Chattarpur farmhouse in south Delhi on Nov 17.
