Amritpal Singh To SURRENDER? High Alert Announced Amid Hunt For Fugitive 'Waris Punjab De' Chief; Punjab Police Officers’ Leaves Cancelled Till April 14-REPORTS
New trouble has dawned upon the state of Punjab and the Punjab Police has cancelled all the leaves of the law enforcement authorities in the state till April 14. 

The latest development comes as the state government has issued a high alert in view of the Baisakhi festival which is on April 14. Amid the troubles brewing in the state due to radical preacher Amritpal Singh's possible meeting with Sikhs which could take place later this month, the police have issued an alert in Punjab. 

The ‘Waris Punjab De’ chief has been on a runaway and the police are making all possible efforts to arrest him. Reports also suggest that radical preacher Amritpal Singh could surrender, however, no official announcement has been made so far. 


Meanwhile, the manhunt launched to nab 'Waris Punjab De' chief is still underway in Punjab and other states across the country, reported Latestly. 

As per an NDTV report, Amritpal Singh has asked the chiefs of Akal Takht, the top Sikh body to convene the "Sarbat Khalsa" in Punjab's Bathinda, that the gathering is likely to take place on the occasion of Baisakhi on April 14. 

“Until then, the leaves of all gazetted and non-gazetted officers have been cancelled,” said Gaurav Yadav, the Punjab Director General of Police (DGP). 

The cancellation of leaves was sanctioned as the reports suggest that Amritpal Singh has asked the chiefs of Akal Takht to take out a religious procession in the state. The major development comes in the view of the high alert and a possible arrest of the fugitive radical Sikh leader. 

Following this, Giani Harpreet Singh, jathedar of Akal Takhth on Thursday announced a three-day annual congregation at Takht Damdama Sahib to celebrate Baisakhi.

As per the reports, the religious procession is likely to be taken out from Akal Takht in Amritsar to Damdama Sahib in Bathinda. A Hindustan Times report said, "There is a marked difference in the annual congregation and 'Sarbat Khalsa'. This is a gathering to mark Baisakhi.”
