KLF Chief nabbed from railway station in Delhi

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Khalistan Liberation Front Chief Harminder Singh Mintoo, who had escaped from Nabha jail in along with five other inmates yesterday, has been nabbed from Nizamuddin railway station here.

The militant outfit leader was arrested late last night from Nizamuddin railway station, Deep, special commissioner of police, Special Cell, said today.



"Police had suspicion about his movement towards and they contacted Police. Following intensive checking and tracking, he was arrested from the railway station last night," said the officer.

A team of police will take him back to the state.

It is the second arrest in the case. UP police last evening arrested the alleged "mastermind" of the daring daylight jailbreak, Parminder Singh.

He was arrested from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh's Shamli district when the getaway vehicle--a Fortuner--was stopped at a police picket.

Mintoo yesterday escaped along with five other prisoners in a sensational jailbreak after armed men in police uniform tricked the sentries into opening the gates of the jail in Patiala, nearly 200 km from here, and bolted out with the inmates while firing a hail of bullets.

Officials said efforts are on to nab the other prisoners who managed to flee.

Mintoo was arrested by Police after he was deported from Thailand in November 2014. He was wanted in ten terror cases.

The KLF chief was brought to India along with his key aide Gurpeet Singh 'Gopi' after Police, in coordination with central agencies, traced them in Thailand, a senior police official said.

Among the escapees was another terrorist Kashmira Singh, according to police chief Suresh Arora.

Meanwhile, police said as per investigations conducted so far, dreaded gangster Gurpreet Sekhon was the alleged mastermind of the jailbreak.

"Sekhon plotted the Nabha jailbreak while another gangster Prem Lahoria and Parminder Singh Pinda executed this plan," Patiala SSP Gurmit Singh Chauhan said today.

Sekhon, who was involved in murder, kidnapping, extortion cases, was among six inmtes who escaped yesterday.

Raids were being conducted at the possible hideouts of the escapees.

"It is a multi dimensional operation...Our efforts are on to track all the prisoners and also who helped them in their escape," said Chauhan, who is also a member of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed to investigate the daring daylight jailbreak.

Police believed that armed men could be 10 to 12 who managed to free six prisoners.

The others who fled were Harminder Singh Mintoo, Kashmir Singh, gangster Vicky Gaundar, Amandeep Dhotian and Nita Deol.
