In continuation with ongoing raids to arrest on the run 'Waris Punjab De' chief Amritpal Singh, Police detained a couple for their alleged links with one of his aides from Ranbir Singh Pura area of Jammu on Saturday.
Police said that Amrik Singh, resident of RS Pura and his wife namely Sarabjeet Kour detained by Jammu Police and further handed over to Punjab Police for reportedly having links with Papalpreet Singh (close aide of Amritpal Singh).
On March 18, Punjab Police launched an operation against Amritpal and his aides. The crackdown came almost over three weeks after Amritpal's supporters clashed with uniformed personnel at the Ajnala police station on February 23, on the outskirts of Amritsar, demanding the release of one of his close aides, Lovepreet Toofan.
Thousands of his supporters stormed the Ajnala police station, flashing swords and high-calibre firearms and threatening the police with dire consequences if they did not release Lovepreet Toofan, who was arrested for allegedly assaulting and abducting a man.
