Amritsar, May 14(ANI): The Anti Terrorist Squad of Punjab Police added one more feather to its cap with the arrest of a hardcore militant and recovery of arms and ammunition from his hideout.
Parading the arrested militant before mediapersons in Amritsar on Saturday, Amar Singh Chahal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Amritsar, said that he belonged to the banned Sikh extremist group 'Babbar Khalsa International' (BKI).
