Chandigarh: In connection with the search for radical Sikh preacher and Khalistan supporter Amritpal Singh in Punjab, Haryana has stepped up vehicle checks on the border with a neighboring state.

The Punjab police launched a massive crackdown on Amritpal on Saturday and suspended Internet access and SMS services until Monday afternoon. 78 members of the Punjab Waris De organization headed by him were arrested.

On the Shambhu-Punjab border, Ambala police are on high alert, officials said on Sunday.

According to them, additional checkpoints were set up and a large number of police officers were sent there.

In some other areas, including Kurukshetra, Kaital and Sirs, which border the Punjab, police remain strict vigilant and have stepped up vehicle checks, they said.

CIA-1 Ambala Police Chief Harjinder Singh, who was present at the Haryana-Punjab border near Shambhu, said the situation was normal and peaceful, but the police continued their vigil.

In Punjab, security forces held flag marches at several locations in the state, including Amritsar, Jalandhar and Ludhiana.

Amritpal, who returned from Dubai, was last year appointed head of Waris Punjab De, founded by actor and activist Deep Sidhu, who died in a car accident last February.

Last month, Amritpal and his supporters, some brandishing swords and weapons, broke through the barricades and broke into the Ajnal police station on the outskirts of Amritsar city and clashed with the police demanding the release of one of his assistants. Six police officers were injured in the incident.

On 23 February, the Punjab Police filed an FIR in connection with the incident.
