Punjab police said on Friday that five people, including a minor, had been arrested in connection with the blast at the Ludhiana District Court building last year. It was also found that the minor who was arrested was getting all the technical support for the accused. Surmukh Singh, Harpreet Singh, Dilbagh Singh and Savinder Singh are among the five accused who were arrested on Friday.
According to the police, just two days before the attack, Dilbagh Singh had kept the IED. The IEDs were then handed over to Surmukh Singh who later handed over this responsibility to Gagandeep Singh. But during the attack, Gagandeep died due to the explosion of the explosive device. Gagandeep was told he was a fired officer in the Punjab Police.
