JAMMU — In continuation with the ongoing raids to arrest fugitive ‘Waris Punjab De’ chief Amritpal Singh, Police have detained a couple for their alleged links with one of his aides from Ranbir Singh Pura area here in the city outskirts.
As per the news agency KNO, Jammu Police on Saturday said that Amrik Singh, resident of R S Pura and his wife namely Paramjit Kour were detained and further handed over to Punjab Police. They have been detained for reportedly having links with Papalpreet Singh (a close aide of Amritpal Singh).
According to police sources, the mobile phones of the couple have also been seized for further investigation. “The matter is being investigated by Punjab Police and they will be questioning the couple in the case,” they added.
Papalpreet reportedly had been working with Amritpal closely since he returned to India last year and took over the reins of ‘Waris Punjab De’, an organization founded by actor Deep Sidhu, who died in a road accident in 2021.
Earlier, district magistrates of Kishtwar and Ramban districts cancelled the arms licenses of two bodyguards accompanying Waris Punjab De chief and pro-Khalistan Sikh leader Amritpal Singh.
Sources said, the licenses of Talwinder Singh and Virender Singh, bodyguards of Amritpal Singh, were issued in Kishtwar and Ramban districts of Jammu and Kashmir. Both the licenses were issued for personal safety but were found violating the rules as they were found protecting someone by becoming their bodyguards.
The officials added that weapons were also procured from the Union Territory and were given licenses for self-defense.
