Justice N.S. Shekhawat asked Advocate General Vinod Ghai how he (Amritpal Singh) survived? To this he replied, we have arrested other accused in the case. The bench asked how everyone except Amritpal Singh has been arrested. The bench said, you have 80 thousand police. How was he not arrested? If he survived, it is an intelligence failure. The Advocate General said, this happens sometimes. G20 summit was also going on.

The High Court appointed advocate Tanu Bedi as an amicus curiae in the matter and adjourned the hearing for four days. The court has also sought a status report from the government. The Advocate General told the court that NSA has been invoked against Amritpal Singh. Please tell that Amritpal Singh is constantly escaping from the police, in such a situation, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) can take over the investigation of this matter on Tuesday. Sources gave this information. A team of NIA has reached Punjab and is talking to senior officers of Punjab Police.

Now there is a strong possibility that NIA can take this matter in its hands on Tuesday. Sources said that the NIA is seeking details and documents related to the case. At present, several agencies are looking into the matter. Sources said, there are possibilities that the NIA may take over the case. The Home Ministry may decide to transfer the case because of the terror link linked to Pakistan’s ISI. Amritpal is currently absconding and it is being said that he must have fled abroad. Tuesday is the fourth day when the agencies are conducting raids to nab him, but there is no trace of him.
