In a major development, the National Security Act (NSA) has been invoked against Amritpal Singh, a notorious criminal who has been on the run for several months. The move comes after the police arrested four more people who had allegedly helped him escape from a police checkpoint.
According to Punjab IGP Sukhchain Singh Gill, a non-bailable warrant was issued against Amritpal Singh on 18th March, and he has been charged under the NSA. The police have been on the lookout for him for a long time, as he is believed to be involved in several cases of extortion, kidnapping, and murder.
The police have also arrested four other people who had allegedly helped Amritpal Singh escape in a Brezza vehicle from the Naka point. The suspects have been identified as Manpreet, Gurdeep, Harpreet, and Gurpej. The police recovered the vehicle, one rifle, and other equipment from them. The Arms Act has also been invoked against them.
Speaking to the media, Punjab IGP Sukhchain Singh Gill said, “We have been working tirelessly to bring Amritpal Singh to justice, and the invocation of the NSA against him is a major step in that direction. The arrest of the four suspects who helped him escape is also a significant breakthrough in the case. We will not tolerate any criminal activity in the state and will take strict action against anyone who violates the law.”
The police have launched a massive manhunt to track down Amritpal Singh and have urged the public to come forward with any information that could help in his arrest. They have also warned that anyone found aiding or abetting him will face strict legal action.
The invocation of the NSA against Amritpal Singh is seen as a strong message to criminals in the state that the law will not be lenient on those who break it. The police have promised to continue their efforts to maintain law and order and ensure the safety of the citizens.
Chief Minister of Punjab, Bhagwant Mann, has expressed his support for the crackdown against notorious criminal Amritpal Singh and his accomplices. “We won’t let anyone disturb the peace in Punjab,” he said, highlighting the government’s commitment to maintaining law and order in the state.

The Chief Minister has also assured the public that his government is committed to ensuring justice for all and will not tolerate any criminal activity in the state. “We will take strict action against anyone who tries to disturb the peace and harmony of our state,” he said.
