Anti-terror braveheart shot in Punjab

Shaurya Chakra awardee Comrade Balwinder Singh (Sandhu) Bhikhiwind (62) was today shot dead by two unidentified assailants on his residence-cum-school premises, months after the government withdrew his security cover.

Assailants opened fire on him while he was opening the gate of the school. He was taken to a hospital where doctors declared him “brought dead”. He had suffered five bullet injuries. The Bhikhiwind police station is only 100 metres away from the crime spot.

Tarn Taran SSP Dhruman Nimbale said a case had been registered and all possible angles were being looked into. The deceased’s family members claimed it was an attack by terrorists.

“Comrade Balwinder Singh was on the hit list of terrorists. Even after repeated requests, the police failed to provide security to the family,” said Balwinder’s wife Jagdish Kaur. Balwinder had fought bravely against terrorism for years. He had trained even his children to fight against militants. His exploits made it to the international media, including National Geographic. The Union Government awarded him Shaurya Chakra in 1993. “Balwinder Singh Sandhu and his brother Ranjit Singh Sandhu are opposed to the activities of terrorists. They were on the hit list of terrorists. The terrorists, so far, have made 16 attempts to wipe out the Sandhu family within about 11 months,” the citation for the gallantry award said.

His is the only family in the country that has received four Shaurya Chakras. Besides Balwinder and his wife Jagdish Kaur, his elder brother Ranjit and his wife Balraj Kaur also received the Shaurya Chakra.

Balwinder’s house was located near the ancestral house of Parmjit Singh Panjwar, self-styled chief of the Khalistan Commando Force, who was later declared India’s “most wanted terrorist”.

Panjwar himself led several attacks on the house of the Sandhus. Their house was attacked with rocket launchers hand grenades etc. for over 40 times. When the police failed to come to their rescue, the Sandhus decided to arm themselves.

“Terrorist attacked us numerous times and 42 FIRs were on record,” said Jagdish Kaur.

Though the deceased was a state-level leader of the CPM when he fought against terrorism, he joined the Revolutionary Marxists Party of India (RMPI) about two years ago.

DIG, Ferozepur range, HS Mann visited the crime site.

2 linked to cross-border drug racket in police net

The Punjab Police have arrested two wanted men in a follow-up action on the recently busted international drug and weapon smuggling racket operated by former BSF Constable Sumit Kumar, alias Noni.

A 7.65 mm pistol with Italy marking, heroin, drug proceeds, two mobile phones, two Wi-Fi dongles and a racing bike were recovered from the accused.

DGP Dinkar Gupta today said the two — Simranjeet Singh, alias Simran, (26) of Dhirpur village in Jalandhar district and Balram Singh (26) of Surakhpur village in Kapurthala district — were arrested on October 4 near Kartarpur in Jalandhar when they were on a heroin delivery mission.

The KTM bike they were riding had been stolen from the parking lot of a private university. A case has been registered against them at the Kartarpur police station under relevant sections of the NDPS Act, Arms Act and the IPC.

Simranjeet was an absconder in the murder case of a Kapurthala sand gravel businessman 10 months ago at Dhirpur village.

Jalandhar AIG (CI) Harkamalpreet Singh Khakh said the police had earlier arrested Amanpreet Singh of Dhirpur village in connection with the murder of Hamira village businessman Jagjit Singh. He and his brothers were in touch with Shah Musa of Pakistan, a cross-border drug smuggler.

During the probe, it came to light that Amanpreet had come in contact with Musa through former BSF constable Kumar, who had been lodged in the Gurdaspur jail in connection with a murder case.

The conspiracy to smuggle drugs and weapons from across the border had been hatched in the jail. After getting bail, Kumar was posted at a guard tower at the International Border in the Samba sector of Jammu from where he kept in touch with smugglers who were further in contact with Musa.

Khakh said Simran, who was the brother of Amanpreet, had admitted he and his brothers had shot the businessman. The DGP said three criminal cases were already registered against him while his accomplice Balram faced a case under the Arms Act registered at the Kotwali police station in Kapurthala. He had been released on bail from the Kapurthala jail due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

KZF module busted in Punjab, 2 ultras in police net

The Punjab Police today claimed to have busted a Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF) terror module with the arrest of two terrorists — Makhan Singh Gill, alias Amli, and Davinder Singh, alias Happy, both residents of Noorpur Jattan village in Hoshiarpur district.

Sophisticated arms and ammunition, including an MP5 sub-machine gun (with two magazines and 30 rounds) and a 9mm pistol (with two magazines and 30 rounds), besides an Etios car, four mobile phones and an Internet dongle have been seized.

Sophisticated arms and ammunition seized from the KZF terrorists.

DGP Dinkar Gupta said during preliminary investigations, Makhan disclosed they were in touch with Canada-based Harpreet Singh, who had instigated them to set up a terror module in Punjab to carry out targeted killings.

Makhan, who had earlier been a close aide of Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) chief Wadhawa Singh Babbar, claimed KZF operative Harpreet was a frequent visitor to Pakistan and was an associate of Pakistan-based KZF chief Ranjeet Singh, alias Neeta.

The accused told the interrogators the seized weapons had been arranged by Neeta through his associates. A couple of other handlers from Germany and the US had also figured in the module and were involved in the transfer of funds to Makhan through different money transfer services, including Western Union, and other channels, said Gupta.

The DGP said Makhan was a hardcore pro-Khalistan militant who had earlier been arrested by the Punjab Police for involvement in arms smuggling and various terror-related offences. As many as seven cases had been registered against him.

Pakistan-trained Makhan had stayed in the US during the 1980s and 90s. He had also stayed with the BKI chief in Pakistan for over 14 years, said the DGP.
