    Pakhandi Sant Baba Prithpal Sinh Arrested in Punjab

    Chandigarh, Jan 2 : A Sikh preacher who heads a prominent gurdwara
    here and who is wanted in cases of cheating and fraud was arrested in
    a Punjab town Saturday, police said.

    "We arrested Prithpal Sinh from Machhiwara town (near Punjab's
    industrial city Ludhiana) this (Saturday) evening. We will produce
    him before the court Sunday," said a police officer.

    "Sinh is wanted in many cases. After interrogation, we hope to solve
    these cases," he added.

    Sinh was absconding since the police booked him in May last year. He
    is wanted in a case of cheating, fraud and criminal conspiracy. He
    has been also charged with selling land belonging to someone else in
    a Punjab town.

    The preacher, who prefixes the title Baba (godman) to his name, runs
    the Gurdwara Gur Sagar Sahib near Sukhna Lake that counts amont its
    visitors top politicians, bureaucrats, police officers and other
    influential people.

    After the arrest, he said: "I was returning to Chandigarh to
    surrender before the police after paying obeisance at a gurdwara in
    Punjab, but the police arrested me. Still, I have full faith in the
    Indian judiciary."
