Gurpreet was produced in the court and was sent to three-day police remand. “By arresting the Sikh youths in old cases, the police are terrorising them. The government should not compel the Sikh youths to take extreme steps,” said Balwinder Kaur, mother of Amritpal, condemning the arrest in a statement.
