Fugitive preacher Amritpal Singh surrendered in Punjab’s Moga this morning after over a month-long chase by the police.
Amritpal Singh, sources say, addressed a gathering at a Gurdwara in Rode village of Moga district before surrendering.
He was arrested from the Gurdwara, officials said.
Moga is the native village of Khalistani separatist and terrorist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. Amritpal, known as “Bhindranwale 2.0” among his supporters, is being taken to Assam’s Dibrugarh jail, where eight of his aides are already being held under the National Security Act,
Amritpal had been on the run since March 18, when Punjab Police launched a major crackdown on members of his ‘Waris Punjab De’ outfit.
Punjab police has urged people to maintain peace and harmony and refrain from sharing any fake news after the arrest of Amritpal.
