Amritpal Singh, a notorious gangster, is still on the run as the manhunt for him enters its fourth day in India. The police have slapped the National Security Act (NSA) on his aides who were arrested earlier this week.
The police have been on a high alert in the state of Punjab ever since Amritpal Singh escaped from police custody last week. He was being transported from a jail in Faridkot to a court in Ludhiana when his accomplices attacked the police convoy and freed him.
Since then, the police have launched a massive search operation to track him down. They have formed multiple teams and have been conducting raids at various locations across the state.
Amritpal Singh is known for his involvement in several heinous crimes, including murder, extortion, and drug trafficking. He is also believed to have links with other notorious gangsters in the region.
The police have warned that Amritpal Singh is armed and dangerous and have urged the public to report any sightings or information about his whereabouts.
In a significant development, the police have slapped the NSA on his aides who were arrested earlier this week. The NSA is a law that allows preventive detention of individuals for up to 12 months if they are deemed to be a threat to national security or public order.
The move indicates the seriousness with which the authorities are taking the case and their determination to bring Amritpal Singh to justice. The aides who have been slapped with the NSA are believed to be close associates of Amritpal Singh and may have vital information about his whereabouts.
The use of the NSA is not uncommon in cases involving notorious gangsters and criminals in India. The law has been used in the past to detain individuals associated with organized crime syndicates and terrorist organizations.
The manhunt for Amritpal Singh has caused a sense of fear and anxiety among the residents of Punjab. The police have advised people to be cautious and report any suspicious activity to the authorities.
The case has also highlighted the issue of security lapses in the transport of prisoners. The incident has raised questions about the preparedness of the police and the need for better security protocols.
