Khalistani terrorists arrested for conspiring to kill Hindu leaders

Punjab Police arrested closet Khalistani terrorists Surinder Kaur and her accomplice Lakhbir Singh in Ludhiana and Gurdaspur respectively

The Punjab Police’s Operation Cell has arrested two Khalistani terrorists including a woman who was working as a nurse in Ludhiana. The woman’s accomplice, who has worked as a driver in Dubai, was arrested from Gurdaspur.

Police say that there were many leaders of Hindu organisations on the hit list of the two Khalistani terrorists. Their aim was to re-activate terrorist activities in Punjab. For this, they were also getting funds from abroad.

Sources associated with the police say that the duo was plotting several major killings. They also planned to assassinate leaders of some Hindu organisations.

The arrested terrorists have been identified. The arrested woman is Surinder Kaur, a resident of Faridkot, who worked as a nurse in a private hospital in Ludhiana.

Surinder Kaur’s male partner has been identified as Lakhbir Singh who hails from Hoshiarpur and has worked as a driver in Dubai.

Khalistani plan hatched last month

Police officials say that the two had come to know each other on a social medium. They were Facebook friends. The cybercrime cell of Punjab Police had been keeping an eye on these two since last month.

Both the arrested Khalistani terrorists revealed during the interrogation that they had plans to revive terrorist activities in Punjab. They used to get money from abroad for this.

The Punjab Police got information about the contact between the arrested militants and the Khalistani separatists settled abroad. Surinder Kaur and Lakhbir Singh were produced before the court from where they were sent to police custody for two days.

A revival of Khalistani terrorism in India looks potent now, with Pakistan dropping weapons in Indian Punjab using drones and even brazenly promoting Khalistanis in the promotional video for the Kartarpur Corridor, released on social media by none other than Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan.
