Amritpal Singh Live Updates Today: Ending a month-long chase, pro-Khalistan preacher and Waris Punjab De chief Amritpal Singh was arrested by the Punjab police from the Moga district Sunday morning. He is likely to be shifted to Assam’s Dibrugarh jail, where nine of his aides are currently lodged.
Amritpal Singh was arrested from Gurdwara Janam Asthan Sant Khalsa of Rode village in Moga, the native village of slain militant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. In a video taken shortly before he was arrested, Amritpal justified his decision to evade the Punjab police, stating that the last one month “exposed” the real face of the Bhagwant Mann-led AAP government.
Amritpal had been on the run since March 18, when Punjab Police launched a major crackdown on members of his ‘Waris Punjab De’ outfit. Singh has been booked under the stringent National Security Act (NSA) and faces over half-a-dozen charges such as attempt to murder, abduction and extortion.
