The Punjab Police on Monday claimed to have foiled a major terror module with the arrest of Amritpal Singh of Mansa who along with two others has been arrested.
The police have recovered weapons from the three alleged terrorists. Senior officials confirm that the terrorists were funded by Khalistani ideologies and were to strike against particular persons in Punjab.
While senior officials remain tight lipped about the arrest, sources confirm that the module was targeting prime targets in the coming month.
“We had some inputs from our Delhi counterparts and therefore the terrorists were apprehended in a special operation by Patiala police,” said a senior police officer.
A senior officer confirmed that the police arrested Amritpal Singh of Mansa for trying to train and carry out some terrorist activity in Punjab.
“His arrest has helped us to foil a different self-styled module that was active in a few states of India,” said a top cop
