Reacting strongly to reports of the arrest of Nabha jailbreak mastermind from the house of an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker, Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh has demanded a thorough probe into Arvind Kejriwal’s ‘nexus’ with militants and gangsters.

 In a statement issued here, the Congress chief ministerial candidate expressed serious concern over the arrest of Gurpreet Singh Sekhon from an AAP activist’s house, just two weeks after Kejriwal himself courted controversy by staying at an ex-militant’s house in Punjab. Capt said Sekhon was arrested from the house of Goldy Gill, an NRI who had been actively engaged in campaigning for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

“There is apparently a strong nexus between AAP and militants as well as gangsters; posing a major threat to the state’s security and safety,” said Captain Amarinder, demanding an independent investigation, preferably by a central agency, into the party’s dangerous links.

“With the links of Maur bomb blasts also being traced to KLF and Kejriwal’s stay at KLF terrorist Gurwinder Singh’s house, the situation warranted a detailed inquiry into what appeared to be nefarious links between AAP and anti-social elements,” the PPCC chief said.
