Punjab to house joint RAW, NIA, IB, MHA, police centre

The work on setting up the joint counter-operation centre in Punjab was expedited when Pakistan dropped in the state weapons via drones

India has decided to set up a Joint Counter-Operation Centre to thwart the plans of Pakistan that is trying to revive terrorism in Punjab. The centre will include representatives from the National Investigation Agency (NIA) Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW), Intelligence Bureau (IB), Ministry of Home Affairs as well as Punjab Police. It will work to strengthen mutual coordination between the security agencies concerned.

Sources said that the proposal was tabled in a meeting of top officials of security agencies in New Delhi after militant outfits in Pakistan dropped weapons from drones in Punjab and then continued to see drones in the border state. This centre will, with coordinated efforts of the agencies, thwart terrorists in Punjab.

According to senior officials associated with this decision, the government has asked the top officials of the Punjab DGP and other security agencies to work in this direction in a timely manner and inform them about the action.

The centre, set up at a time between the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor and the intelligence inputs about Pakistani ISI’s ‘air terrorism’ plans for the Indian state of Punjab, will act as the nodal agency for the security agencies. Intelligence agencies have clearly stated that Pakistan’s intention is to use the Kartarpur Corridor to promote terrorism as Subramanian Swamy had warned, a warning Home Minister Amit Shah did not pay heed to. Through radical organisations like Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), Pakistan wants to fulfil its nefarious designs. Many gurdwaras are being used in Pakistan to campaign in support of Khalistan. Inflammatory leaflets are being distributed.

The NIA, as well as Punjab Police, has registered several cases against the SFJ. Intelligence agencies say that Pakistan is also trying to revive other Sikh terrorist organisations. It has been sending weapons to India through Punjab since the day Article 370 was scrapped.
