Punjab again the target of terrorist, India warns Canadian govt of attacks being plotted by Khalistan terror camp in Canada


New Delhi : Almost six months after the Pathankot terror attack, Punjab again the target of terrorist. Indian intelligence agencies have notified the Canadian government, alerting them of the camp that pro-Khalistan terrorists have been running near Mission city in British Columbia, preparing to carry out strikes in Punjab.

According to a report prepared by Punjab intelligence sleuths, Canadian Sikh Hardeep Nijjar has taken over as the operational head of Khalistan Terror Force (KTF) and formed a module comprising Sikh youths to carry out the attacks. The Punjab government has already submitted the report to the ministry of external affairs and ministry of home affairs to seek Nijjar's extradition. 

The report makes a reference to the January 2 Pathankot airbase attack, saying Nijjar "was to arrange weapons from Pakistan but due to high alert on the border in the wake of Pathankot incident, , it could not materialise". "Nijjar has been imparting arms training to his group in Canada after the arrest of former KTF chief Jagtar Tara in Thailand by Interpol last year. He took Mandeep Singh and three more Sikh youths recently for AK-47 training in a range near Mission where they were made to fire for four hours daily," the report said.
