Amritsar, October 29

In a major embarrassment to the Punjab Police, a sessions court today granted bail to alleged Khalistani operative Gurmit Singh, a resident of Amritsar, after the Amritsar rural police failed to present a challan in the court even after the lapse of three months. Gurmit was nabbed in June.

The police had claimed to have busted a terror module with the arrest of two alleged Khalistani operatives. DGP Dinkar Gupta, during a media briefing at the time, had claimed the two were preparing to carry out a series of terror attacks and targeted killings at the behest of their Pakistani mentors and handlers. The other accused was identified as Vikram Singh.

The police had claimed Gurmit was in regular touch with Pakistan intelligence service ISI and anti-India elements. "It is conceded that a period of more than 90 days has elapsed since the custody of the accused. The police have not submitted the challan while application for extension of time beyond 90 days has already been dismissed by the court. Therefore, the accused is ordered to be released on bail on his furnishing personal bonds," the order issued by Sessions Judge BS Sandhu read.
