Many offices of senior officials of the Punjab Police were on the target list of Pakistan-based terrorist groups. This came to light during the interrogation of the two suspects, including a cop, who were arrested by the police in connection with planting an IED under Sub-Inspector Dilbagh Singh’s vehicle.

The police had arrested Harpal Singh, a cop, and his relative Fatehdeep Singh in the case from the Delhi airport as they were fleeing the country.

A senior police official privy to the investigations said besides many policemen, a number of offices of Punjab Police officials were on the target of Pakistan-based terrorist Harwinder Singh Rinda and gangster Lakhbir Singh Landa, who is currently residing in Canada. Landa is also the prime accused in the rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) blast at the headquarters of the Punjab Police intelligence wing in Mohali in May.

The police have also reportedly detained a Ludhiana resident in the case. He is close to Fatehdeep Singh. However, his role is being verified. The police also launched a manhunt to nab the duo who had planted the IED under the SI’s SUV.
