A court here today sent UK citizen Jagtar Singh Johal, arrested in connection with targeted killing cases in Punjab, to police remand for two days in the case of firing at an RSS Shakha in Kidwai Nagar.
On January 18 last year, two persons had opened fire outside an RSS shakha in Kidwai Nagar. RSS worker Naresh Chauhan had a close shave and two the suspects had fled from the spot.
He was sent to the police remand for two days in the case of firing at an RSS Shakha in Kidwai Nagar, the police said.
Johal alias Jaggi was among five accused arrested in connection with the targeted killings, including that of RSS leader Jagdish Gagneja. Johal was apprehended from Jalandhar.
The police had last month claimed to have solved the mystery behind the attacks on RSS Shakhas and the firing on Amit Arora, a Ludhiana based Hindu leader. Five incidents of targeted killings had taken place between April 2016 and February 2017.
Punjab police has accused the UK citizen of conspiracy, coordination, funding and arranging of weapons for members of the Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) module busted in connection with the targeted killings.
