Four persons caught at toll barrier in Haryana with arms, ammunition, explosives

Four suspected Khalistani terrorists have been arrested at a toll plaza in Haryana, the police said today, adding a large quantity of arms, ammunition and explosives have been recovered from them. They were going to deliver explosives to Maharashtra’s Nanded and Telangana’s Adilabad.

The key accused, Gurpreet, was earlier in jail, where he met a Rajbeer, who had links with Pakistan, the police said.

They were arrested at 4 am at Karnal’s Bastara toll plaza while they were on their way to Delhi in a white Toyota Innova SUV. The other three suspects have been identified as Bhupinder, Amandeep and Parminder, all residents of Punjab.

They used to deliver consignments of explosives across India, the police said, adding the four have links with Pakistan’s ISI.

The four suspects had been taking order from another terrorist, Harvinder Singh, who handled them from Pakistan, the police said.

The four were given improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, to be distributed across India. The suspected terrorists managed to supply IEDs in at least two places earlier.

The weapons recovered from the suspects include a country-made pistol, 31 bullets and three iron containers with IEDs. Cash of ₹ 1.3 lakh was found with them.
