Chandigarh, June 19

The Punjab Police on Thursday night busted another terror module with the arrest of two alleged Khalistani operatives, who were preparing to carry out a series of terror attacks and targeted killings at the behest of their Pakistani mentors and handlers.

Acting on a tip-off, an Amritsar rural police team raided a spot near Gurdaspuria Dhaba on GT Road and apprehended Gurmeet Singh and Vikram Singh. A German-made MP5 sub-machine gun, a 9-mm pistol with four magazines and two mobile phones with a host of incriminatory conversations, messages and photographs were seized from the duo.

The mobile phones revealed suspicious transactions with Pakistan-based elements, including photographs, voice messages as well as coordinates of a particular geolocation, DGP Dinkar Gupta said on Friday.

A large number of posts and web links connected with the Khalistan movement were also found on the mobile phone of Gurmeet Singh, who has been in regular touch with the ISI and anti-India elements sponsored by the Pakistan establishment. A case has been registered under the IPC, Arms Act and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

The DGP said Gurmeet Singh, 44, of Amritsar admitted that the photographs and voice messages had been shared with them by their Pakistan-based handlers to locate and pick up sophisticated weapons kept at that location by their accomplices. He said he had visited Pakistan about three years ago to meet his handlers.
