“Dhadi was trying to flee using a fake passport,” said a senior Punjab Police official, requesting anonymity.

“In a major breakthrough, SSOC Amritsar has arrested #UK-based, Paramjit Singh @ Punjab Singh @ Dhadi from #Amritsar airport. An associate of Lakhbir Rode, the chief of the banned terrorist outfit #ISYF, Dhadi has been involved in terror funding & other subversive activities in #Punjab,” tweeted director general of police (DGP) Gaurav Yadav on Tuesday. He said their investigation is on to unearth and expose the terrorist network.

72-year-old Rode, who was the International Sikh Youth Federation (ISYF)’s self-styled head and nephew of Khalistani militant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, died of a cardiac arrest in Pakistan. Rode was listed as an ‘individual terrorist’ under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
