Thursday, March 14, 2019

New Delhi: A member of the banned terrorist group and an associate of Jarnail Singh Bhinderwale, who was killed by the Indian Army in 'Operation Blue Star' in 1984 was nabbed by the Delhi police, officials said yesterday.

The accused Gursewak Singh (53), is a member of Khalistan Commando Force (KCF) and was planning to re-constitute his organization on directions of KCF chief Paramjeet Singh Panjwad, who was based in Pakistan, police said.

Singh was also in touch with Jagtaar Singh Hawara and other terrorists lodged in various jails in India including Tihar jail, police said adding Gursewak was arrested by the crime branch from ISBT Delhi on March 12 where he had come to meet one of his contacts.

Gursewak was previously involved in more than 50 cases of terrorist activities, murders of police officials and informers, robberies in banks and police station among others, said Ajit Kumar Singla, Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime).

He remained in jail for more than 26 years in different cases and was in regular touch with some Pakistan based terrorists.

Police said Singh was born in a farmer family residing in Raikot village in Punjab's Ludhiana district. His elder brother Swaran Singh was a member of terrorist group led by Bhinderwale in Punjab in 1980s.

Gursewak also joined the group in 1982, the police official said.

In 1984, when Binderwale was killed, most of his associates fled to Pakistan where they were trained and supported by ISI.

During that time, Gursewak joined the newly formed KCF constituted by terrorist Manveer Singh Chehdu and actively participated in anti national activities, he said.
