According to the Punjab Police, with the arrest, they have foiled a possible terror attack in the state. A case has been registered in Tarn Taran.
DGP Dinkar Gupta said that Sarup Singh was caught by the Tarn Taran police on Monday on the basis of suspicion at a checkpoint on the Amritsar-Hareke road. The anti-national forces are in the midst of a terrorist incident in Punjab. Recently, the Punjab Police had recovered hand grenades and tiffin bombs filled with RDX, besides other arms and ammunition.
Earlier on August 8, 2021, Amritsar Rural Police had recovered tiffin bombs and five grenades from Dalleke village of Lopoke. The State Special Operation Cell (Amritsar) also recovered two hand grenades of the above Marka and Model (P-86) along with other weapons from Amritpal Singh and Shammi on 16 August 2021.

DGP Dinkar Gupta said that during the preliminary investigation, Sarup Singh has revealed that he had come in contact with terrorist organizations sitting abroad through social media and they radicalized him and motivated him to carry out terrorist activities in Punjab. The operators sitting abroad had arranged for the two grenades.
Sarup had already tracked down some sensitive targets in Amritsar and Ludhiana. A video of masters sitting abroad has been found on his mobile. In the video, he is giving training in the use of grenades.
The DGP said further investigations are on to unearth the wider terrorist network and their plans. Preliminary investigation also reveals that all these consignments have been sent from across the border by different terrorist organizations to carry out terrorist attacks in Punjab.
