The operation stemmed from intelligence gathered in 2020, indicating that Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF) terrorist Jagdish Singh Bhura was orchestrating plans to target high-profile locations in Punjab.

During interrogation, the arrested individuals disclosed their allegiance to wanted terrorist Jagdish Singh Bhura and his close associate Prabhpreet Singh, revealing plans for further attacks on prominent targets, according to DGP Gaurav Yadav.

Since Prabhpreet was residing in Germany, Punjab Police issued a Look Out Circular (LOC) against him. Upon receiving information about his detention at IGI Airport, a team from SSOC Amritsar swiftly moved to Delhi and arrested the accused.
