New Delhi: Khalistan Liberation Front chief Harminder Singh Mintoo, who had escaped from Nabha jail in Punjab along with five other inmates on Sunday, was arrested from Nizamuddin railway station in Delhi on Monday morning.
Arvind Deep, special commissioner of police, Special Cell, said the militant outfit leader was arrested late last night from Nizamuddin railway station.
The arrest happened within 24 hours after Mintoo, another terrorist and four gangsters broke out of the Nabha Jail in Punjab on Sunday morning after it was attacked by 10-12 armed men.
Mintoo was arrested by Punjab Police after he was deported from Thailand in November 2014. He was wanted in ten terror cases.
The KLF chief was brought to India along with his key aide Gurpeet Singh 'Gopi' after Punjab Police, in coordination with central agencies, traced them in Thailand, a senior police official said.
On Sunday evening, Parminder Singh alias Pamma Singh, one of the alleged gunmen who carried out the sensational jailbreak, was caught in Shamli district in Uttar Pradesh.
