Chief, Harminder Singh Mintoo

New Delhi/Chandigarh: Khalistani Liberation Force (KLF) Chief Harminder Singh Mintoo was today nabbed from Delhi railway station, a day after he escaped with five other inmates from Nabha jail in Patiala.

“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.

It is the second arrest in the case. UP police last evening arrested the alleged “mastermind” of the daring daylight jailbreak, Parminder Singh.

He was arrested from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli district when the getaway vehicle–a Toyota Fortuner–was stopped at a police picket.
