Patiala, June 25

A Nabha court today further extended the police remand of the Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) ultra Bakhshish Singh for three days. Bakhshish was today produced in the court and the Nabha Sadar Police sought his custody for 10 more days. The police asserted that it was extremely important to extract maximum information about his links with other terrorists.

Meanwhile, counsel of Bakhshish and General Secretary of Sikhs for Human Rights (SFHR) Lakhwinder Singh Kaliraun said the police sought to extend his remand in order to draw vital information from him though he had been in the police custody for 25 days. “In fact, the police is torturing my client, despite knowing that he cannot move properly. He should be sent for medical examination,” he told The TNS. Kaliraun said they might file a petition in the HC.

A source in the Intelligence Department said there was a possibility that Bakhshish might have hidden explosives in UP.

A resident of Nizamniwala village, Bakhshish, figures in the category of dreaded terrorists and has 28 cases pending against him in Punjab, Haryana, UP and Delhi. Besides being the main accused of attacking Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, his involvement in the terrorist activities came to light when the police announced that he was involved in planting the IED outside the LPG Bottling Plant, Nabha, and near the Air Force Station, Halwara.
