Capt Amarinder rejects Intelligence reports suggesting ISI plan to revive militancy in Punjab

Chandigarh, June 4, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

A high level meeting of the state’s top brass, chaired by Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, on Tuesday reviewed the state’s internal security as well as law & order, but raised doubts about the authenticity of alleged intel reports suggesting an ISI project to target retired Army and Police officials in a bid to revive militancy in Punjab.

Even as he directed the top police and other officials of the government to ensure all possible steps to maintain peace and harmony in the state, the Chief Minister agreed with them that reports referring to intel inputs on such a project seemed far-fetched and removed from the ground realities.

The reports were not verified and could be false, the meeting felt, with the Chief Minister asking the police to take all possible steps to verify such reports and check the spread of rumours, which could lead to panic among the people.

The Chief Minister, however, made it clear that his government would not allow the state’s peace and law & order to be disturbed at any cost, and asked the police to take any precautionary steps that might be needed at the current juncture.

The meeting comes a day after Punjab Police said Pakistan-based Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) handler Harmeet Singh alias ‘’ was plotting to carry out a Rajasansi-like attack on the anniversary of the Operation Bluestar.

The disclosure came on the heels of seizure of smuggled hand grenades at Kukranwala Adda in Amritsar district’s Ajnala subdivision. After initial investigations, police said Harmeet ‘PhD’, also a suspect in the grenade attack on a prayer congregation at the Nirankari Bhawan in Rajasansi, was believed to be behind the smuggling of the hand grenades from Pakistan.

Police officials briefed the Chief Minister on the incident and informed the meeting that further probe was on to ascertain more details about the make of the grenades and the smuggling route.

The meeting was attended amongst others by Media Advisor to CM Raveen Thukral, Officiating DGP V K Bhawra, Chief Principal Secretary to CM Suresh Kumar, Principal Secretary to CM Tejveer Singh, and Additional Chief Secretary Home N S Kalsi.
