New Delhi, March 19: As Punjab Police's operation to arrest Amritpal Singh continues, Daljeet Singh Kalsi alias Sarabjeet Singh Kalsi, an alleged advisor and financer of the 'Waris Punjab De' chief has been arrested, central agency sources informed on Sunday.

This comes after the Punjab Police launched a massive crackdown on the 'Waris De Punjab' chief on Saturday.


Police were deployed outside Amritpal Singh's residence in Jallupur Khera village in Amritsar earlier today, and security was increased across the state as the Khalistani sympathiser outfit chief is currently on the run, according to the police.

Earlier, Jalandhar Commissioner Kuldeep Singh Chahal confirmed that the radical leader had been declared a "fugitive".

Earlier, the Jalandhar Commissioner said, "Waris Punjab De' chief Amritpal Singh has been declared a fugitive. His two cars were seized and gunmen nabbed. We also checked if the firearms of his security escorts had been procured legally. A case has been registered. Punjab Police have launched a manhunt for Amritpal Singh and we are hopeful that he will be arrested soon. A total of 78 people have been arrested so far and further searches and raids are underway".

Meanwhile, the father of a pro-Khalistan leader said the Punjab Police searched his Amritsar home and did not find "anything illegal".

Amritpal's father, Tarsem Singh, believes the police should have arrested him before he left the house.

"We have no information on his whereabouts. They searched our house for three to four hours but found nothing illegal. Police should have arrested him before he left home," said Tarsem Singh.
