Cancel case or face consequence: Khalistani leader Amritpal Singh threatens cops to release aide in Amritsar

AMRITSAR: Massive protests broke out against the arrest of pro-Khalistan leader Amritpal Singh's close aide Lovepreet Toofan on Thursday.

Supporters of the 'Waris Punjab De' chief held swords and guns and broke through police barricades erected outside Ajnala Police Station in Amritsar.

Six cops were injured amid the protests and were admitted to the Ajnala hospital.

Heavy police force was deployed in the area and efforts were on to control the protesters.

Amritpal Singh is the head of 'Waris Punjab De', a group founded by activist Deep Sidhu, who died in a road accident in February last year.

Videos and images shared on social media showed a sea of protesters outside the Ajnala police station, while the cops tried to control the crowd.
