Punjab Police has arrested top Khalistan Tiger Force terrorist Ramandeep Singh alias Goldy from Chennai airport in the intervening night of 5-6.
The police were tracking Goldy for a long time and he was traced in Thailand. A two-member police party camped in Thailand for three weeks in September-October 2014, but Goldy managed to slip away to Malaysia. He was further tracked down in Malaysia and, in co-ordination with central agencies and Malaysian authorities, brought to Chennai in the wee hours of November 6, 2014 by Punjab Police party at the airport.
Goldy’s arrest comes close on the heels of the arrest of Rattandeep Singh, the chief of the Bhindranwale Tiger Force of Khalistan (BTFK) and former top associate of Paramjit Singh Panjwar and Wadhawa Singh from Gorakhpur, UP by a police party of the State Special Operation Cell (SSOC) on September 17. Rattandeep Singh was based in Pakistan since 1993 and was wanted in numerous cases of bomb blasts.
