Patiala: An eight-member team of British police arrived here on Thursday to probe the killing of RSS activist Rulda Singh.

Rashtriya Sikh Sangat, cultural organisation affiliated with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, leader Rulda Singh was shot at outside his house here on July 28, 2009 and died later at PGI, Chandigarh on August 15 last year.

The team will collect evidence in the murder case of Singh in which four British nationals of Indian origin will stand trial stand trial on homicide charges in UK.

The West Midlands police had arrested them after the Punjab police shared information with its British counterparts.

The team led by Detective Superintendent George Tracy held meetings with senior Punjab Police officials to coordinate the collection of evidence in the case, police said today. The team has refused to talk to media.

Two members from the team arrived at central jail here and interrogated Jagmohan Singh, arrested by Punjab police in connection with the case, for almost two hours.

While, two other members went to Nabha high security Jail to interrogate Darshan Singh, also arrested in connection with the same case.

Jagmohan and Darshan had revealed that the conspiracy was hatched by the Babbar Khalsa International to kill Rulda for his ideological leanings.

Rulda Singh, who was closely associated with the Rashtriya Swyam Sewak Sangh, had attracted flak from fundamentalist Sikh bodies which had claimed that his organisation was trying to dilute the Sikh identity through its activities in Punjab.

According to investigations, Paramjit Pamma of Babbar Khalsa International in the United Kingdom allegedly masterminded the murder, and Pyara Singh Gill and Gursharan Bir, both from UK, had travelled to India to allegedly execute the plan.

The fourth suspect Amritbir Singh was also arrested in UK.

Both Pyara and Gursharan had returned to UK after allegedly murdering Rulda Singh.
