In another major terror crackdown, the Punjab Police has busted a terrorist module of revived Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF) backed by Pakistan and Germany-based terror group, and seized a huge cache of arms, including five AK-47 rifles, pistols, satellite phones and hand grenades. The module was conspiring to unleash series of terror strikes in Punjab and or adjoining states.
Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has decided to hand over further investigations in the case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to ensure that the entire conspiracy is unravelled.
With initial investigations revealing the use of drones to deliver terrorists weapons and communication hardware across the border, the chief minister has also urged the Central government to direct the Indian Air Force (IAF) and Border Security Force (BSF) to launch necessary counter-measures to check any further threat from drones to the border state of Punjab.
According to DGP Dinkar Gupta, the weapons were suspected to have been delivered recently across the Indo-Pak border from Pakistan over drones launched by the Pak establishment, the ISI, and the state-sponsored Jihadi and pro-Khalistani terrorist outfits working under its command.
