Security services have suspected that Amritpal Singh, the leader of the Khalistani Waris Punjab Division, receives financing from Pakistan’s Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) to promote him as Bhindranwale 0.2 on social media.
As per a report in India Today, this incident came days after a fight broke out in Ajnala between Amritpal Singh’s Waris Punjab De followers and Punjab Police over the detention of Singh’s close aide, Lovepreet Singh Toofan.
Police barricades set up outside the Ajnala Police Station were breached by supporters brandishing swords and firearms. In addition, the protesters shielded themselves with the Guru Granth Sahib holy book.
But, Punjab Police decided to free Lovepreet Singh Toofan after speaking with the Waris Punjab De chief and his supporters.
