Punjab police arrest 2 BKI members

Jalandhar, Mar 7 (UNI) In an intelligence-based operation, Punjab police averted possible target killings with the arrest of two members of the Babbar Khalsa International (BKI)-backed terror module on Thursday.

DGP Gaurav Yadav said that the module was operated by USA-based Harpreet Singh alias Happy Passian, a close aide of Pakistan-based terrorist Harwinder Singh alias Rinda, along with his associate identified as Shamsher Singh alias Shera, presently based in Armenia.

He said, “As per preliminary investigations, Happy Passian was working in connivance with Rinda and Shamsher to radicalise the youth by motivating them to carry out anti-national activities in the state. The police recovered two pistols, four magazines, and 30 live cartridges from them.”

FIR has been registered under the UAPA and Arms Act at the State Special Operation Cell (SSOC), Amritsar.
