Khalistani terrorist deported from Thailand held by Punjab police

After he landed at Indira Gandhi International Airport, Khalistani terrorist Kulwinderjit Singh, alias Khanpuria, was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) immediately after being deported from Thailand.

As a result of the Red Corner Notice issued by Interpol three years ago, Khanpuria was arrested Friday, carrying a reward of Rs five lakh. Several terrorist cases, including one involving targeted killings in Punjab, were alleged to have been linked to him, including involvement with the Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) and the Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF).

According to the NIA, Khanpuria has been absconding since 2019. On November 18, Khanpuria was produced before a special court in Mohali and remanded to police custody until November 25.

In addition to being involved in many terrorist cases, the arrested terrorist was also wanted for conspiracy to carry out targeted killings in Punjab. The NIA reported that he had also been involved in grenade attacks in other states in the nineties and a bomb blast in Connaught Place, New Delhi.

As a result of its investigation, the NIA has concluded Khanpuria was the mastermind of the conspiracy that targeted establishments related to Dera Sacha Sauda, as well as those belonging to the Punjab police and security forces, to carry out terrorist attacks in India.

Additionally, he targeted senior officers of Bhakra Beas Management Board, Chandigarh, to create terror throughout Punjab and the country. Additionally, he surveyed some of the targets,” the NIA stated.

On May 30, 2019, Punjab police initially registered a case against Khanpuria, a resident of Lambardar Mohalla in Doraha town in Ludhiana.

According to the investigation, Khanpuria had planned and conspired to carry out terrorist attacks in India with the help of his handlers and associates, both in India and abroad. As a result of his escape, Khanpuria was arrested by the NIA.

He is reported to have colluded with Harmeet alias PhD while abroad and with wanted Pakistan-based ISYF chief Lakhbir Singh Rode recently to take out the identified individuals and establishments with the help of his India-based terrorist associates.

A Look Out Circular (LOC) was issued, and Interpol issued a Red Corner Notice against Khanpuria after he was declared a Proclaimed Offender (PO) by the NIA Special Court, Punjab. NIA has also announced a cash reward of Rs 5 lakh for information leading to his arrest. As a result of the recovery of arms and ammunition from Khanpuria’s possession, four of his associates have already been arrested,” the NIA has announced.
