Waris Punjab De chief Amritpal Singh remains absconding since March 18 when the Punjab Police launched a massive crackdown on him and his organization and arrested several workers associated with the organization.
Meanwhile, fugitive Amritpal Singh’s wife, Kirandeep Kaur, has been stopped at the Amritsar airport and is being questioned, sources in the Punjab police said. She was at the airport to board a flight to London.
“Amritpal Singh’s wife Kirandeep Kaur has not been detained yet. She is being questioned by the Immigration department,” Punjab Police source said.
Amritpal Singh married Kaur, a UK-based NRI, in February this year. Singh had then said that his marriage was an example of reverse migration and announced that he and his wife would live in Punjab. Kirandeep Kaur was born in Punjab but brought up in the UK as her family relocated there.
A senior police official confirmed Thursday’s development adding that an LoC was issued against Kirandeep Kaur. On Thursday, she was not allowed to enter the airport by the immigration department as she arrived at the airport to Amritsar to London (Air India AI 169) flight scheduled for its departure at 1:20pm, said sources in Punjab Police. As of now, she is being questioned at the airport only.
