New Delhi [India], Dec. 26 (ANI): The judicial custody of Khalistan Liberation Force terrorist (KLF) Harminder Singh Mintoo, who escaped from Punjab's Nabha Jail along with five others, has been extended till January 9. Mintoo has been in custody since November 29, a day after he was nabbed from New Delhi railway station. The self-styled KLF chief has reportedly told his interrogators about the KLF's expansion plans with the help of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence. Days before the Nabha jailbreak, he had his last Skype chat with his Pakistan handler Harmeet, a KLF militant who managed to flee to Pakistan, and is living in a safe house under protection of the ISI at Dera Chall village in Lahore. The ISI had reported plans to restart militancy in Punjab through the KLF under the leadership of Mintoo, who has bases in countries like Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. Germany and U.K. based KLF sympathisers were also sending money to Mintoo through Western Union Money Transfer. (ANI)
