Bambiha was spotted in Ludhiana many times. He had given the police a slip, when they raided at a house for his arrest on July 24.
Later, the police registered a case of hatching conspiracy for executing dacoity against him and his accomplices.
Bambiha, who was active on social media, had updates his Facebook page few hours before he was killed in the encounter.
As the news of his killing surfaced, followers expressed grief over his death on Facebook. His accomplices have posted a status after his death warning his rivals that they will be taught a lesson.
