Khalistan Sympathiser Amritpal Singh Arrested

Amritpal Singh, self-styled radical Sikh preacher and Khalistan sympathiser, has been arrested by the Punjab Police after a dramatic chase, sources said. A special team of the state police, comprising personnel from seven districts, had followed the separatist leader’s convoy while he was on his way to Jalandhar’s Shahkot tehsil.

The Internet was suspended across the state till 12 pm tomorrow as Amritpal’s associates started circulating frantic videos appealing to supporters to reach Shahkot.

Anticipating disturbance, a large contingent of police has been deployed outside Amritpal’s native village, Jallupur Khaira, in Amritsar district. Sources said police and paramilitary forces have sealed the village.

Sources say the state government waited for the G20 event to get over to initiate action against him.

Amritpal leads “Waris Punjab De”, a radical organisation started by actor and activist Deep Sidhu, who died in a road accident in February last year.
