Ludhiana, November 29
The Ludhiana Commissionerate on Tuesday brought notorious gangster Yuvraj Sabharwal alias Yash on production warrant from Amritsar. Yash is a close aide of Canada-based terrorist Lakhbir Singh Landa and Pakistan-based terrorist Harvinder Singh Rinda, who has been reportedly killed.
Yuvraj was the key accused in the Amritsar IED case and he was the one who retrieved and planted IED on the directions of Landa.
Ludhiana police crime branch had been looking for Yuvraj after his Ludhiana aides, who had supplied Sim cards to the accused involved in IED case were arrested by the Ludhiana crime branch-1 team led by Inspector Beant Juneja.
“Yuvraj had assembled and fitted IED under the vehicle of Amritsar cop. His questioning will bring forth a lot of information into the network of terrorists. Three more Sim card which are yet to be recovered is still a mystery and Yuvraj will be questioned if those sim cards were used in other IED devices. If not, where are those sim cards," said Inspector Juneja.
The Amritsar IED case
On August 16, 2022, two motorcycle-borne persons had planted an IED under the Bolero SUV of Sub-Inspector Dilbag Singh parked outside his residence in the C-Block area of Ranjit Avenue, Amritsar.
