In connection with the arrest of two associates of Arshdeep, the special cell of the Delhi Police has registered a case against the accused under UAPA. The police have taken both terrorists into custody for 14 days.
In fact, before January 26, the special cell of the Delhi Police took drastic measures. The special cell had arrested two accomplices of terrorist Arshdeep Dalla who were in Canada from Delhi. The arrested terrorists planned target killings to sour the atmosphere in Delhi ahead of Republic Day. The police got the blueprint of the terrorist incident from the terrorists’ cellphone.
Delhi Police have recovered three modern handguns and 22 cartridges from the possession of arrested terrorists Jagjit Singh alias Jagga alias Jassa alias Yakub alias Kaptan and Naushad. Delhi police spokesman Suman Nalwa has confirmed the arrest of the suspect.
A senior officer of the special cell said that on January 26, under the supervision of ACP Lalit Mohan Negi, posted in the special cell, several teams were monitoring terrorists and mischievous elements. After several days of surveillance, the special cell on Thursday arrested Kopa Kirpali Gulat Bhoj, Jagjit Singh (29), resident of Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarakhand and Naushad (56), resident of Jahangirpuri, Delhi.
Naushad has been a member of the Harkat-ul-Ansar terrorist organization. He has been sentenced to life imprisonment in two counts of murder and 10 years under the Explosives Act. Jagjit Singh is a member of the Bambiha gang of Punjab. He was instructed by terrorist Arshdeep Dalla who was in Canada for anti-national incidents. He would be a special assistant to Arshdeep. He was paroled in a murder case in Uttarakhand.
Arshdeep Dalla is a feared terrorist of the Khalistan Task Force (KTF). The government of India had declared him a terrorist two days ago. Arshdeep went into hiding to Canada in 2017. He has been carrying out anti-national activities from Canada to the country ever since.
