Punjab Police Deploys Drones to Trace Amritpal Singh’s Swift Car After Dramatic Chase
Punjab police has deployed drones to trace ‘Waris Punjab De’ leader Amritpal Singh who has been on the run for over 10 days. The move comes after an alleged chase on the Phagwara-Hoshiarpur road in a Swift car in which Singh is said to have escaped. The fugitive recently appeared in a video calling for a ‘Sarbat Khalsa’ congregation on Baisakhi.
Amritpal Singh has been on the run since March 18 after a National Security Act (NSA) was invoked against him and his co-conspirators. While his aides were arrested, Singh managed to slip away by changing multiple vehicles, changing his clothes, and even robbing a bike at gunpoint. Recently, he appeared in a video calling for a ‘Sarbat Khalsa’ congregation on Baisakhi. He also said that he was in high spirits.
In the video, he also shared that he is not in police custody and said, “If the government’s intention had only been to arrest me, it could have come to my house and arrested me, I would have given up. But the way adopted by the government to deploy lakhs of cops and laying a cordon, the Almighty brought us out of that” (translated).
