High Alert on Border to Check Escape Attempt by Fugitive Khalistani Amritpal Singh

New Delhi: BSF and SSB are put on ‘high alert’ at borders in view of possible escape attempt by self-proclaimed Khalistani preacher Amritpal Singh.

The Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has directed the Directors General (DGs) of Border Security Force (BSF) and Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) asking them to order their field formations to be on high alert in frontier areas in view of a possible attempt by Waris Punjab De chief Amritpal Singh to escape the country, reported the Tribune.

The immigration authorities at international airports are also asked to remain on high alert.

BSF and SSB authorities have sent all required inputs to their field units with two photographs of Amritpal Singh, with and without a turban.

Punjab police has declared Amritpal Singh as a “fugitive”. So, it is suspected that there is a possibility that he could try to cross the India-Nepal border or the International Border in Punjab to escape out of the country.

Indo-Nepal border is guarded by SSB and the border in Punjab is being manned by the BSF.

Amritpal Singh had gone to Dubai in 2012 to work as a truck driver in his family transport business. Around the time, he also came in contact with ISI supported Khalistani operatives. Pakistan’s ISI provided him financial support to revive Khalistan separatist sentiments in Punjab, say IB officials.
