New Delhi: The chief of the militant outfit Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) Harminder Singh Mintoo was driven off from the Nabha jail in Punjab on Sunday when ten armed men stormed into the jail.

Along with Harminder Singh Mintoo, the unidentified men also took along four other prisoners from the jail. Mintoo was arrested by Punjab police from Delhi’s IGI Airport in 2014. Four other gangsters who were freed by the ten armed men from Nabha jail are Gurpreet Singh,Vicky Gondra,Nitin Deol, Vikramjeet Singh Vicky. 

Mintoo was prosecuted by the court in ten terror-related cases which include the 2008 attack on Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and the blast at Halwara Air Force station.

The Khalistan Liberation Force or KLF is an insurgent group, and is part of the Khalistan movement to create a Sikh homeland called Khalistan via armed struggle. The KLF appears to have been a loose association of scattered Khalistani groups.
