Some suspects ran away leaving the car, search operation started


Punjab Police is on high alert to nab fugitive separatist Amritpal Singh and a massive search operation was launched on Tuesday following which some suspects were chased in Hoshiapur village but they abandoned their car and fled.

Sources said that the police suspected that fugitive Amritpal and his associates were traveling in the car, following which they followed the car in Phagwara.

The occupants of the vehicle fled leaving their car near Gurudwara Bhai Chanchal Singh at Marniyan Kalan here, they said. Amritpal and his associates had stormed the Ajnala police station near Amritsar, demanding the release of an arrested person.

Three weeks after the incident, on March 18, the police started action against him and members of his pro-Khalistan organization ‘Waris Punjab De’. Amritpal is absconding since then. He had escaped from Jalandhar district on March 18. Cases have been registered against Amritpal and his associates under several criminal charges related to promoting disharmony, attempt to murder, assault on policemen and obstructing public servants in discharge of their duties.

A new video of Amritpal surfaced on social media on Tuesday, in which he is seen with his key aide Papalpreet Singh. In the video, Amritpal Singh is seen without a turban and wearing a mask. There is no date on this CCTV footage and it is said to be of a market in Delhi.

In this, fugitive Amritpal is seen walking on the road wearing dark glasses, while Papalpreet Singh is seen walking behind him with a bag. No official statement has come from the Punjab Police on this new footage. A senior Delhi Police officer said they are probing whether the men seen in the video are Amritpal Singh and his associate.
