In connection with the Republic Day violence orchestrated by the Khalistani terrorists, a Dutch national of Indian origin and a Delhi-based man have been arrested by the Delhi police, taking the total arrests in the case to 14.
A twenty-three-year-old Dutch national, Maninderjit Singh, was arrested from IGI Airport as he was allegedly trying to fly out on a fake identity in the face of a lookout circular against him. Maninderjit was planning to fly to Nepal and from there to the UK after being under “pressure” and “anticipating” his arrest. The other suspect,21-year-old Khempreet Singh, was held from West Delhi’s Khyala on a tip-off, said Monika Bhardwaj, deputy commissioner of police (west).
The DCP said that the evidence against Maninderjit is in the form of video footage that shows him in the company of spear-wielding rioters and taking an “active part” in rioting. Khempreet, on the other hand, was caught on video attacking police personnel inside the fort, the officer said.
