Haryana: Four Suspected Terrorists With Pak Link Caught With Explosives

Chandigarh: On May 5, four suspended Khalistani terrorists, have been arrested at a toll plaza in Haryana, police said. Large quantity of arms, ammunition and explosives have been recovered from them, police further added. They were going to deliver explosives to Maharashtra’s Nanded and Telangana’s Adilabad, officials said.

The main accused, Gurpreet, was in jail. At jail he met Rajbeer, who had links with Pakistan, the police said.

Gurpreet and three other accused arrested today used to deliver consignments of explosives across India, the police said. Police further added, four have links with Pakistan’s espionage agency Inter-Services Intelligence, or ISI.

Around 4 am from Karnal’s Bastara toll plaza they were arrested. They were on their way to Delhi in a white Toyota Innova SUV. The other three suspects have been identified as Bhupinder, Amandeep and Parminder, all residents of Punjab.

A military grade mini-rover was utilised to approach the SUV and look for IEDs, in addition to a fully dressed bomb disposal expert.

The suspects were taking order from another terrorist, Harvinder Singh, who handled them from Pakistan, the police said.

They were given improvised explosive devices, or IEDs which were to be distributed nationwide. The suspected terrorists managed to supply IEDs in at least two places earlier.

The recovered weapons include a country-made pistol, 31 bullets and three iron containers with IEDs. Cash of ₹ 1.3 lakh was found with them.

“Preliminary information suggests they were basically acting as couriers and transporting these arms and ammunition in an Innova vehicle and were headed to Adilabad in Telangana,” Karnal Range Inspector General of Police Satender Kumar Gupta told news agency PTI. “They will be produced before a court and taken on police remand, after which they will be questioned in detail,” he said.

“Three containers suspected to contain RDX (explosives), firearm, a pistol and 31 round live cartridges have been seized,” he added.
