Karnal : Four terrorists of Punjab, who were going to terrorize Telangana state were arrested by the Karnal Police and recovered a huge amount of explosives from their possession. Confirming the arrest of 4 terrorists and finding a huge amount of explosives from them, Superintendent of Police Ganga Ram Punia said that the explosives kept in 3 tin containers were being taken to Telangana. Meanwhile, after getting input from a credible agency, Dial 112 team overpowered them at Bastara toll at around 4 am today.
During the investigation, a country-made pistol and 31 cartridges and one lakh 30 thousand rupees have also been found from the terrorists. Earlier, these terrorists have also delivered a consignment of explosives to Nanded. 3 tin containers filled with explosives have been found, each of them weighing 2.5 kg. The Superintendent of Police, however, did not reveal the name of the agency giving the inputs. But it is being told that the input was given by IB. The arrested terrorists include Gurpreet Singh, his brother Amandeep, Parminder and Bhupendra Singh. Three of these terrorists are from Ferozepur and one from Ludhiana. Terrorist Harvinder Singh Rinda, living in Pakistan, used to land these explosives in Firozpur through drones and then they were transported to other states of the country.
The SP said that this terrorist gang has already received two consignments through drones. The containers full of explosives recovered from the terrorists today were being taken to Adilabad in Telangana. According to the information, Harvinder Singh, a terrorist sitting in Pakistan, used to drop explosives in the fields of Ferozepur through drone. The field where the explosives were dropped belongs to the maternal grandmother of Gurpreet’s friend Akashdeep. During this, Rinda also used to send the location through an app and explosives were delivered to the same location by these terrorists. A case has been registered against them at Madhuban police station. The SP said that the arrested accused Gurpreet has lived in jail. He met Rajveer in jail itself. Rajveer had an old identity with Pakistani terrorist Harvinder Singh Rinda. It was Rajveer who got Gurpreet to talk to Rinda.
After the arrest of the terrorists, the biggest question before the district police was to check the contents kept inside their Innova car. There was a apprehension that the car might explode during the investigation. For this, a robot was sent to the car through a remote control before sending the bomb disposal squad near the car. The robot opened the rear door of the car and took the camera mounted on its arm inside and scanned the contents. Meanwhile, the employees of Madhuban police station were also busy filling sand bags. As soon as the robot X-rayed the containers kept in the car, the experts present at Madhuban police station confirmed that there are explosives in the car.
The court has given 10-day police remand to the four terrorists. The four were produced in the court on Thursday evening in the presence of heavy police force due to their links with Pakistan. Haryana Police may take the accused to Ferozepur for further investigation.
