The accused disclosed that the above arms and ammunition had been arranged for them by Ranjeet through his associates.
A couple of other foreign based terrorist handlers from Germany and the USA had also figured in the module, who were involved in transferring funds from abroad to Makhan through different money transfer services, including Western Union and other funding channels as well, added Gupta.
The DGP disclosed that Makhan Singh was a hardcore pro-Khalistan militant who had been earlier arrested by Punjab Police for his involvement in smuggling in arms consignments into India and various terror related offences.
‘Amli has been trained in Pakistan and he has earlier stayed in USA during 1980s and 1990s.
He has been very closely associated with the Pak based Babbar Khalsa International chief, Wadhawa Singh Babbar and stayed with him in Pakistan for over 14 years,” he added.
Gupta disclosed that a case FIR no. 204 has been registered at PS Mahalpur, Hoshiarpur district. He added that Amli had been engaging in various terror and other criminal activities in the past. As many as 7 cases had been earlier registered against him.
Dinkar Gupta added, that based on the inputs about the disruptive designs of certain pro-Khalistan elements, who had plans to disturb peace and communal harmony in the state by launching terror attacks, security forces across the State had launched a major drive to conduct raids and checking the whereabouts of members of various terrorist modules busted in the past.
The current breakthrough was the result of these concerted efforts and the drive launched in the recent past, said the DGP.
