Punjab director general of police (DGP) Gaurav Yadav said acting swiftly on the intelligence and human-intelligence inputs, police teams from the counter intelligence, Jalandhar, laid a special naka in the area of Rama Mandi and arrested the accused after recovering the sophisticated automatic pistol from his possession.

“The probe revealed that Lovepreet was being handled by Pakistan-based operatives, who tasked him to carry out target killing in the Jammu and Kashmir region,” he said.
