On March 23, 2023, a video was released by Amritpal Singh, who is the radical preacher and the chief of the “Waris Punjab De” organization. The video was released 11 days after he had gone into hiding.
In the video, he urged the “Sikh sangat” to come together to “save” Punjab. He also denied being in police custody and assured his safety. He said that he was “absolutely fine” and that nothing could harm him. He stated that his arrest was in the hands of the Guru.
Amritpal Singh, who is a fugitive Khalistani leader, further urged his supporters to join the Sarbat Khalsa campaign if they want to save Punjab. He thanked his supporters who had carried out protests against the actions taken against him. He also alleged that many of his supporters had been sent to Assam jail.
However, the date and location of the video could not be verified. It is not clear where Amritpal Singh was when he released the video.
Amritpal Singh has been on the run since March 18, 2023, when Punjab Police launched a massive manhunt for him. This crackdown came almost three weeks after his supporters clashed with uniformed personnel at the Ajnala police station on February 23. The supporters were demanding the release of one of his close aides, Lovepreet Toofan.
The situation in Punjab is tense, and the police are continuing their search for Amritpal Singh. The video has added fuel to the fire and has caused concern among the authorities. The safety and security of the people of Punjab are of utmost importance, and the police are doing everything in their power to maintain peace and stability in the state.
