Joga Singh, the accomplice of the fugitive Amritpal Singh, has been arrested. Joga Singh had allegedly provided the Scorpio vehicle used by Amritpal Singh to flee from the authorities.
According to reports, Joga was arrested in the intervening night of Thursday and Friday by the Punjab police near Ludhiana.
Amritpal Singh, a suspected Khalistani supporter, had been on the run since his involvement in the Red Fort violence during the farmers’ protest in January 2021. The police had been searching for him for several months and had recently traced his location to Fazilka in Punjab.
