Punjab police on guard to stop revival of terror

Noting that terrorist groups were were attempting to revive terrorism in Punjab, state police chief Sumedh Singh Saini on Friday said his force was taking all measures to thwart the plans of these outfits.

“Police are geared up to tackle terrorism and taking actions in this regard. Police have “effectively” foiled Naxal attempts to create disruptions in the state. There are reports that terror groups are making attempts to revive terrorism in the state,” he said.
He added Punjab Police would not permit revival of terrorism at any cost.

On the recent incidents of “lawlessness” at Amritsar and Ludhiana, he said police took prompt actions and the follow-up is being monitored at the highest level.

Referring to the attack on a police officer at a Ludhiana pub, he said, “It was not a premeditated plan and it was on the spur of the moment.”

The DGP, however, noted that the killing of an ASI at Amritsar allegedly by an Akali leader and Ludhiana incident, were offences of “serious nature”.

“Police response in both the cases was immediate and strict action will be taken against accused,” he said.
