Patiala, Oct 31 (UNI) The Punjab Police today nabbed three suspected terrorists and claimed that they had links with Khalistan Commando Force (KCF) chief Paramjit Singh Panjwar, who is based in Pakistan.
The three terrorists were identified as Didar Singh alias Dari, a resident of Baba Bakala in Amritsar, Bahal Singh alias Bala of Singhpura in Killianwali in Sirsa district of Haryana and Ajmer Singh, a resident of Langianwali in Gurdaspur district.
Giving details to mediapersons here, SSP S K Asthana claimed that the three had targeted Mithu Singh, a member of the 15-member political committee of Dera Sacha Sauda.
However as they found Mithu Singh a 'difficult target', they targeted Bhola Singh, brother of Mithu Singh. However Bhola survived the September six attempt and was injured in the attack.
The police have recovered the motorcycle used by the three in the attack on Bhola Singh in Bhikhi on September 6. Besides a 9 mm pistol and some live cartridges alongwith 200 grams of smack was also recovered from their possession.
The three were presented before a local magistrate and were remanded to police custody.
The Patiala police had arrested Bagicha Singh, Amarjit Singh and Gobind Kaur last month for their involvement in the failed assassination attempt on Dera Sacha Sauda head Ram Rahim Singh.
However the police has not yet been able to lay its hand on Bakshish Singh, a local resident who is wanted by the Haryana police for masterminding the attack on the Dera Sacha Sauda head near Karnal.
