KLF chief Mintoo held in Delhi

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Nov 28 - Khalistani Liberation Force (KLF) chief Harminder Singh Mintoo was today sent to seven days� police custody by a Delhi court which noted that �custodial interrogation� of the accused was required to unearth conspiracy in the Nabha jailbreak case.

Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh sent Mintoo to custody till December 5 after Delhi Police sought seven days� remand to interrogate him. While seeking his remand, the police said that they needed the custody of the dreaded terrorist to know about the role of �insiders and outsiders� who assisted him and five others in fleeing from Nabha jail in Patiala.

They further said that the role of Inter-Services Intelligence and some terror organisations is needed to be probed in the case as he had also visited Pakistan. One loaded pistol and six live cartridges were recovered from his possession, the police said, adding that he was earlier a member of Babbar Khalsa International and later floated his own group.

Mintoo was nabbed from a Delhi railway station, a day after he escaped with five other inmates from the jail.

The UP police last evening had arrested the alleged �mastermind� of the daring daylight jailbreak, Parminder Singh. He was arrested from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh�s Shamli district when the getaway vehicle � a Toyota Fortuner � was stopped at a police picket.
