Terror module busted in Punjab

September 24, 2019

The Punjab Police busted a terror module, supported by Ranjeet Singh, the Pakistan-based commander of theKhalistan Zindabad Force. Singh, who is also known as Neeta and his Germany-based associate Gurmeet Singh were using the support of local sleeper cells to identify, hire and train young men to commit acts of terror.

They planned to unleash a series of strikes in Punjab and neighbouring states, according to the police. Four terrorists were also arrested from Tarn Taran district and a huge cache of arms was found along with AK-47 rifles, pistols, satellite phones and hand grenades.

Police believe the weapons had been transported across the India-Pakistan border using drones, and the operation was co-ordinated by the

Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), the Pakistani spy agency and pro-Khalistani terrorist outfits.

The large-scale infiltration appeared to have been aimed at scaling terrorism and militancy in Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab and the Indian hinterland in the wake of the recent developments in the Valley. - Dinkar Gupta, Director-General (Police), Punjab

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has handed the case over to the National Intelligence Agency (NIA). He has also asked the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the Border Security Force (BSF) to take action to prevent any more threat by drones to Punjab.

"We also recovered more than 500 rounds of ammunition and fake currency worth over ten lakh rupees", said another police official.
