Two alleged associates of Canada-based terrorist Lakhbir Singh Landa from Punjab have been arrested by Delhi police ahead of Republic Day. According to the police, the two were smuggling drugs and firearms and were tasked with two targeted killings as well.
Rajan Bhatti, a resident of Gurdapur in Punjab, and Kanwaljeet Singh alias Chinna, a resident of Ferozepur in Punjab have been nabbed by Delhi police ahead of Republic Day, according to reports. Bhatti was caught first in the ongoing operation to dismantle Khalistani terror-gangster nexus.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Manishi Chandra stated Bhatti is Punjab’s wanted gangster and a close associate of Landa Harike, another fugitive. He was reportedly involved in over 15 cases in Punjab and an FIR has been registered against him for his involvement in target killings and for disturbing communal harmony.

The police used the information they got from Bhatti to arrest Kanwaljeet Singh. The DCP shared that Delhi police and Punjab police carried out a joint operation to capture Singh. According to reports, Bhatti was Singh’s handler and was working with him to send and receive drugs and firearms in Punjab through drones. The DCP added that the duo also had instructions from Landa Harike to carry out two target killings in Punjab.
