Amritsar, November 4

A local court has sentenced two persons to 10-year imprisonment under the Arms Act and the Explosives Act.

It, however, acquitted the duo — Maan Singh Nihang and Sher Singh — under the UAPA and Foreigners Act. The court has also sentenced two others — Gurpreet Singh and Simranjit Singh — to five-year imprisonment.

As per the FIR lodged at the Ramdas police station on May 21, 2017, Maan Singh Nihang, a resident of Samrai village, near Shri Hargobindpur (Gurdaspur), and Sher Singh, a resident of Kartarpur (Jalandhar), were nabbed by the BSF with arms and ammunition.

The FIR stated that the two had links with terrorists in Canada and Pakistan and were trying to recover an illegal consignment of weapons smuggled from Pakistan when they were arrested. Later, five more names surfaced.

The accused were learnt to be in touch with Gurjivan Singh, an alleged hardliner based in Canada, who had arranged the weapons from Pakistan.
