The State Special Operation Cell has arrested an accomplice of the five terrorists, who were nabbed along with arms and ammunition a couple of days ago. The accused has been identified as Daler Singh alias Bunty of Rohini, Delhi.

A senior officer said Daler Singh was nabbed from Nada Sahib-Morni road in Panchkula, where he had gone to meet somebody.

“Daler Singh was a member of the terrorist group, which was conspiring to create disturbance in Punjab by carrying out targeted killings. Certain members of managing committee of Dera Sacha Sauda and some Hindu leaders were on their target,” he said. The officer said Daler Singh came into contact with the group members through Gurpreet Singh, one the five terrorists arrested from Mohali recently, in Tihar Jail.

“Daler Singh is a hardcore criminal and is facing a number of criminal cases relating to murder, attempt to murder, dacoity and other heinous crimes. Most of these cases have been registered against him at different police stations in Delhi,” said the official, adding that he was planning to arrange more firearms for the group through arm suppliers whom he had met in Tihar Jail.

The police had already arrested Harvinder Singh (24) of Panchkula; Sultan Singh (29) of Saidpura village, near Kurukshetra; Karamjeet Singh (28) of Raoke Kalan village, near Moga; Lovepreet Singh (22) of Baliyan, near Sangrur; and Gurpreet Singh alias Preet (29) of Sector 20, Chandigarh.
