Superintendent of Police (SP) Mandeep Singh said the accused has links with Babbar Khalsa, adding his track record is being scanned to get more details.

The accused was in touch with Babbar Khalsa militants in Canada and was planning something big in Punjab, he said.

“The police have also beefed up security and installed checkpoints at various places to nab some more people associated with the organisation,” he said.

In another development on Thursday, a local court in Punjab’s Nawanshahr district gave six-day police remand to suspected Babbar Khalsa International terrorist Arvinder Singh.

The police had on Wednesday nabbed Singh from Rahon town.

Acting on a tip-off, a team comprising the Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) and Rahon SHO nabbed Singh from a house where he was hiding.

Earlier, the Patiala Police had on March 19 confirmed the arrest of six Babbar Khalsa militants.

The police said several cases had already been registered against the arrested militants.
