Wednesday, 16 September 2020 | PNS | Chandigarh

Punjab Police on Tuesday claimed to have busted yet another pro-Khalistan terrorist module, with the arrest of two persons allegedly operating in connivance with five criminals, including a Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF) operative currently languishing in Amritsar jail.

Director General of Police (DGP) Dinkar Gupta said that the Pakistan-backed module was busted on the basis of inputs about the nefarious designs of certain pro-Khalistan elements trying to disturb peace and harmony in the State by launching terror attacks.

Gupta said that following the inputs, the Punjab Police had launched a drive to ensure thorough frisking and checking of all those entering the State from various parts of the country, thus leading to the arrest of Harjeet Singh alias Raju and Shamsher Singh alias Shera, both residents of Mianpur village in Tarn Taran district.

Six weapons (one 9 mm pistol, four .32 calibre pistols and one .32 revolver), eight live rounds of ammunition, several mobile phones and an internet dongle were seized from the duo, who were nabbed at the checkpost near Hotel Jashan on Rajpura-Sirhind road.  During preliminary investigation, the accused revealed that they received four weapons from Burhanpur, Madhya Pradesh, and two were received from Safidon, Jind district of Haryana, said the DGP adding that duo is also wanted in an attempt to murder and Arms Act case registered in Police Station Sarai Amanat Khan, District Tarn Taran.
