A day after daring daylight jailbreak in Nabha, Punjab, Khalistan Liberation Force Chief Harminder Mintoo was arrested from Delhi on Monday.
Mintoo was arrested in a joint operation by the Punjab Police and the Special Crime Branch of the Delhi Police.
“Mintoo has been arrested from Delhi railway station by Delhi police,” said a senior official of Punjab police in Chandigarh.
He said Delhi police nabbed the dreaded terrorist on the basis of inputs passed on by Punjab police. “We passed on the information about Mintoo following which Delhi police arrested him,” official said.
He said a team of Punjab police will go to Delhi to bring him back.
Mintoo and five others escaped from Nabha jail in Punjab on Sunday after armed men in police uniform tricked the sentries into opening the gates and bolted out with the inmates firing a hail of bullets.
