Punjab Police has got a huge success. Papal Preet Singh, close aide of Khalistan supporter Amrit pal Singh has been arrested. After absconding from Jalandhar, Papal Preet Singh was continuously with Amrit pal Singh. Amrit pal and Papal Preet travelled together, changing vehicles, as they escaped the chase by the police. From Punjab, they fled to Haryana and probably to Delhi, as captured in CCTV footage, before they entered Punjab again. From Hoshiarpur they chose their ways.
Khalistan supporter Amrit pal Singh is absconding since March 18. Special Cell and Punjab Police have arrested Papal Preet Singh in an extensive operation. However, the Punjab Police has not yet given any information about it. Papal Preet Singh is believed to be very close to Amrit pal. In such a situation, with his arrest, the police will be able to get detailed information related to Amrit pal.
Meanwhile, Punjab IGP Suk chain Singh Gill said that “action will be taken against Papal Preet as per law”. The Punjab Police has increased its vigil across Punjab ahead of Baisakhi celebrations and rumours that Amrit pal Singh was about to surrender. Papal Preet’s arrest brings the police closer to Amrit pal Singh who is believed to be hiding in Punjab.
Punjab Police chief Gaurav Yadav said the police will nab whosoever is wanted by the law and it is better that such people submit to the law. Amid reports that Amrit pal might have taken shelter at a religious place, the director general of police said religious places should not be used for personal reasons.
