Indian Police Service say they have arrested the alleged Sikh separatist leader Amritpal Singh, bringing to an end a massive months-long manhunt. The news announced in a tweet on Punjab Police India’s official Twitter account stated that Singh was arrested in Moga, Punjab, in the northwest of India, but will be taken to a high-security jail in Assam in India’s far east. Singh is a leading activist within the Khalistan movement, an outlawed separatist campaign that seeks to establish a sovereign state for followers of India’s minority Sikh religion. Police have been searching for Singh since March 18, when he was accused of attempted murder, obstruction of law enforcement, and creating “disharmony” in society.
