After busting a terror module a few days ago, the counter intelligence wing of Amritsar police has recovered three more pistols along with 15 cartridges.
The police had on Thursday arrested Gurpal Singh of Jalalpur Kalan in Jalandhar, Major Singh, who hailed from Karnal but now lived at Dera Gurdwara Guruana Sahib, Veronangal village here, and Rachhpal Singh of Jalalabad, who lived at Khuda Ali Sher in Chandigarh. The police said the accused had links with the Khalistan Zindabad Force and other foreign-based terrorists.

A police team from Amritsar went to Chandigarh and recovered three pistols, along with magazines and 15 cartridges.”
