Pro-Khalistan elements trying to disturb peace: DGP

Terror module busted, 2 held

Chandigarh, September 15

The Punjab Police have busted yet another pro-Khalistan terror module with the arrest of two persons allegedly operating in connivance with five criminals, including a Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF) operative currently lodged in an Amritsar jail.

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, said DGP Dinkar Gupta.

Gupta said following the inputs, the police launched a drive to ensure thorough frisking and checking of those entering the state from various parts of the country. This led to the arrest of Harjeet Singh, alias Raju, and Shamsher Singh, alias Shera, both residents of Mianpur village in Tarn Taran district.

Six sophisticated weapons — a 9mm pistol, four .32 calibre pistols and a .32 revolver — eight live rounds of ammunition, several mobile phones and an Internet dongle were seized from the two, who were nabbed at a checkpost near Hotel Jashan on the Rajpura-Sirhind road by a police team comprising ASI Gurdarshan Singh, Head Constable Jora Singh and Home Guard Pritpal Singh. — TNS
