The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested prime accused Harpreet Singh in connection with the Ludhiana court blast about a year ago.

He was arrested shortly after he landed at the Indira Gandhi International Airport from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in the early hours of Thursday, the agency said.

The Ludhiana police registered a case on 23 December 2021. The NIA took over the investigation on 11 January. The agency found that Mr. Harpreet, an associate of International Sikh Youth Federation chief Lakhbir Singh Rode of Pakistan, was one of the alleged conspirators.

Acting on Rodeo’s instructions, he allegedly coordinated the delivery of an improvised explosive device that was sent from Pakistan to his India-based associates and used in the blast that claimed one life and injured several.
