Chandigarh, 15th May. 
Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Gaurav Yadav announced on Tuesday the successful dismantling of a terror module operating within the state, with the arrest of four individuals, including a key operative, linked to the module.

The module, masterminded by Iqbalpreet Singh alias Buchi, who resides abroad, was brought to light by the Punjab Police’s Anti-Gangster Task Force (AGTF). The key operative, identified as Gurwinder Singh alias Shera, was apprehended along with three other members at Liberty Chowk in Rajpura.

According to DGP Yadav, Shera disclosed during interrogation that Buchi had assembled the group with intentions to carry out criminal activities in Punjab, aimed at disrupting peace and harmony within the state.

The arrest operation, conducted by AGTF teams under the supervision of Additional Director General of Police Promod Ban, seized three pistols and 13 live cartridges from the suspects. Additionally, the vehicle used by the group was impounded.

Shera, previously arrested by AGTF in 2022 for alleged involvement in planning target killings on Buchi’s instructions, was out on bail at the time of his recent arrest.

The other three individuals apprehended were identified as Gurpreet Singh of Patiala, Ranjit Singh alias Sonu, and Jagjit Singh alias Jashan, residents of Patti in Tarn Taran.

Police investigations revealed Buchi’s association with deceased Khalistan separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, as well as his close ties with Ramandeep Bagga alias Canadian, the primary shooter in seven targeted killings between 2016 and 2017. Bagga faces multiple criminal charges and is currently incarcerated in Tihar Jail.
