Amritpal Singh and Papalpreet once again escaped by dodging the police on Tuesday night, but both the youths traveling in the Innova with them have been taken into custody. Both are residents of Ludhiana. Investigation has revealed that Amritpal and Papalpreet along with both were trying to go to Amritsar, where Amritpal Singh wanted to pay obeisance at Sri Akal Takht Sahib.
Both Amritpal Singh and Papalpreet absconded, due to which the police siege has also raised questions. The ‘Counter Intelligence’ branch of the Punjab Police conducted a car chase in Phagwara on Tuesday evening. The police suspected that fugitive Amritpal and his associates might be traveling in the car.
It is believed that three or four people were traveling in the vehicle and they fled leaving their car near Gurudwara Bhai Chanchal Singh at Marnaiyan Kalan here.
Police officials said that a search operation has been launched in Phagwara also after Marnaiyan village of Mehtiyana. Police sources say that there is input that Amritpal and his accomplice Papalpreet Singh are hiding somewhere in the Hoshiarpur-Nawanshahar and Phagwara belt.
The police officers are clearly refusing to name the two youths riding the Innova. During interrogation, it was revealed that Amritpal Singh had met both of them on the Ludhiana-Patiala road and had left with them to go to Amritsar.
How is Amritpal dodging?
The Punjab Police has not been able to catch Amritpal yet. But his photos and CCTV footage are continuously coming to the fore. He has been seen in Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Patiala and Kurukshetra in Haryana. Meanwhile, many people who helped were also arrested by the police.
On Monday, a photo of him drinking an energy drink along with his friend Papalpreet went viral on social media. After this, the new picture of him sitting on the jugaad car created a sensation. The news reached Nepal. There was apprehension that Amritpal had reached Nepal. He can run away from here.
Immediately, India requested Nepal not to let Amritpal escape to any third country. But meanwhile the news of his being in Punjab has taken everyone by surprise. He is constantly dodging the security agencies. The biggest question is that if Amritpal had gone to Delhi, how did he return to Punjab?
