KLF Chief was in touch with terror groups in Pak: Punjab DGP

Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) chief Harminder Singh Mintoo, who had escaped from Nabha jail in Punjba along with five other inmates yesterday and was arrested by police from Nizamuddin railway station, was in touch with terror groups in Pakistan, police said today.

"Mintoo was in touch with associates of terror groups in Pakistan," Suresh Arora said this evening.



The dreaded terrorist would be subject to "intensive interrogation" when he would be brought from Delhi, the DGP said.

"We will put him to intensive interrogation after we bring him to Punjab," he further said.

Yesterday, Deputy Chief Minister had voiced apprehension that could be behind the sensational Nabha jailbreak, saying the neighbouring country was "desperate to revive terrorism" after conducted the surgical strike across the LoC.

"Pak desperate to revive terror post surgical strike. Could be behind jail break," Sukhbir had tweeted.

Mintoo, who was wanted in ten terror offences, was arrested by Police after he was deported from Thailand in November 2014.

DGP further said that Parminder Singh Pinda would also be questioned when he would be brought to the state.

Pinda was arrested last evening from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh's Shamli district by UP Police.

In a sensational jailbreak, Mintoo yesterday escaped along with five other prisoners after armed men in police uniform stormed the high-security Nabha prison in Patiala. He was nabbed from Nizamuddin railway station in today.
