    Chandigarh: A top Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) terrorist, wanted for 2010 Patiala blast and the murder of the head of a RSS-affiliated Sikh cultural outfit, was arrested today by Punjab Police in Chennai after he was deported by Malaysian authorities.

    In the search of Ramandeep Singh alias Goldy, who was hiding in Thailand, a a two-member police team had camped in the country for three weeks in September-October.

    However, Ramandeep had escaped to Malaysia, according to a release issued by Punjab Police today.

    Later, Malaysian authorities were contacted by the Punjab Police and Central agencies, and Ramandeep was deported to Chennai this morning.

    Punjab Police arrested the terrorist and brought him to Patiala today.

    He will soon be produced before the concerned court.

    The arrest of Ramandeep comes close on the heels of the arrest of Rattandeep Singh, the chief of Bhindranwale Tiger Force of Khalistan (BTFK) and former top associate of Paramjit Singh Panjwar and Wadhawa Singh from Gorakhpur, UP on September 17, 2014, the release further said.

    The Counter Intelligence Wing of the Punjab Police has started tracking wanted terrorists who are staying abroad and in this process, intelligence leads about the whereabouts of Ramandeep were received, developed and shared with the Central agencies.

    Rulda Singh, head of Rashtriya Sikh Sangat, a wing of the RSS, was shot at on July 28, 2009. He later succumbed to the injuries.

    "Two UK-based persons Gursharan Singh and Piara Singh were assigned the task of shooters who had to kill Rulda while recce and masterminding in India was done by Ramandeep with his associates Darshan Singh and Jagmohan Singh," the statement said.

    Later, Ramandeep escaped to Nepal.

    During his stay in Nepal, Ramandeep developed association with Pakistan-trained terrorist Harminder Singh alias Raj in March/April 2010 and the duo roped in Jaswinder Singh, Gurjant Singh and Manjinder Singh to raise a terrorist module which was responsible for two bomb blasts in Patiala and Ambala.


    The Patiala blast took place on April 20, 2010. Paramjit Singh alias Pamma remained the mentor of Ramandeep and the link to the Pak-based KTF chief Jagtar Singh Tara. -PTI

    ISI trying to revive Khalistan movement: Govt

    Press Trust of India, New Delhi, Dec 27 2017, 18:01 IST

    Operatives of Pakistan's espionage agency ISI are making efforts through moral and financial support to revive pro-Khalistan elements for anti- India activities, the government informed the Rajya Sabha today.

    Certain elements in Pakistan are providing funds to separatists for secessionist and terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir as well, Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Gangaram Ahir said in response to a question.

    "Inputs indicate that ISI operatives are making efforts towards moral/financial support to pro-Khalistan elements for anti-India activities as well as to revive militancy in Punjab," he said.

    He said the government has adopted an integrated approach to counter the attempts to revive militancy. This includes sustained vigilance along the borders, strengthening of mechanisms for intelligence gathering and sharing.

    "A close watch is maintained on the activities of various groups known to have been engaged in trying to foment terrorist activities. Necessary action is taken so as to maintain peace and harmony in the State," he said.

    I don't understand why are we not supporting Balauchistan freedom fighters and Sindhis and Pakhtoonis morally. We should be supporting their freedom movement at all forums. Instead Pakistan things of breaking India, they should be saving their ass first. Offense is the best defence. Let's keep them busy in their own country. They should not have any time to think about India.

    Actually I dont like the term Khalistan is being used here because Khalistan has been already established inside Republic of India which is the current Punjab State.

    Here we all need to understand one thing from where they get training, weapons and intelligence and mainly these people are involved in drug smuggling and in no way we can call them the followers of Guru Nanak Dev Sahab because these are not the real teachings of Khalsa and if estimates will be provided by the Central and Punjab State Government about the deaths of youths because of drug mafia then we can see that more youths have been dead because of narcotics then by armed terrorism. This narcotics even comes under proxy war and on that even prostitution for honey traps targetting Government officials, military and police personnels , so that they forget thier line of duty towards the nation which in real is direct violation of the Constitution of Republic of India.

    Indian nation will not forget the duty towards the nation and we will kick all those who are involved in supporting these narcotic terrorism and there are even Indian Intelligence reports that the payments are being given in Europe to be precise in Britian. So its time for the Indian leaders to make list of those nations who are supporting them aboard specially Europe.

    The Fazilka police had on numerous occasions raided Chanankhera near here and Mahalam village in Jalalabad. They had seized thousands of litres of ‘lahan’ (raw liquor) in the past decade, but these illegal activities have continued.

    Head Constable Nirmal Singh of the CIA Staff had stated that armed miscreants attacked the raiding policemen and damaged their van before fleeing. “They attacked and beat us. They also tried to shoot us,” he said.

    Some of the assailants were identified as Raju, Sandeep Singh, Jaggi, Lakhu, Kuldeep Singh, Mandeep Singh, Sher Singh, Veerpal, Ranga alias Kuldeep, Baj Singh, Harnek Singh, Bittu, Kamal alias Lovely and Jolly.

    The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will soon approach Interpol to corroborate the evidence that Pakistan’s Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) was allegedly involved in the targeted killings of Hindu leaders in Punjab during the past two years in a bid to revive terrorism in the state.

    Sources in the Punjab Police, who are assisting the NIA in the ongoing investigation, confirmed this to The Tribune. They said the interrogation of Sikh hardliners and gangsters, who were earlier grilled by the Moga police, had revealed that funds were routed from Pakistan to radicals in the UK, Italy, France, Germany, Canada, US, UAE and other countries, from where these were sent to India through hawala operatives to carry out targeted killings.

    Senior RSS leader Brig Jagdish Gagneja (retd), Punjab Shiv Sena labour leader Durga Prasad Gupta, Hindu leader Amit Sharma, Dera Sacha Sauda followers Satpal Kumar and son Ramesh Kumar, Christian leader Pastor Sultan Masih and Ludhiana-based RSS leader Ravinder Gosain were allegedly targeted by militants with the help of local gangsters.

    About two months after taking over the investigations of these high-profile murders, the NIA has also come across reports of Sikh outfits’ association with militants in Jammu and Kashmir. The NIA team visited Jammu region recently. There were also intelligence inputs that the ISI was trying to revive militancy in Punjab by forging an alliance between Khalistani outfits and Pakistan based Terror Group

    Sources said four militant organisations — Babbar Khalsa International, Khalistan Liberation Force, Khalistan Zindabad Force and International Sikh Youth Federation of Lakhbir Singh Rode — were still out to revive militancy. Based on Moga police inputs, the NIA has also confirmed that Pakistan-based Harmeet Singh “PHD” was a key link between ISI and Sikh militants.

    Many youngsters in the state are being influenced by Khalistani groups active abroad and recruited to kill specific targets, including RSS members and Dera followers

    • A new brand of Sikh militancy has surfaced in Punjab — educated, suave, clean shaven and mostly millennial young men and women from families with no links to the pro-Khalistan movement, according to police.

      Radicalised through social media by Khalistani groups active abroad, these young Sikhs are recruited to kill specific targets set by their handlers, said police after busting several modules behind “targeted killings” in Punjab last year.

      “It’s a new way of spreading terrorism. Pro-Khalistani forces are radicalising people using cyber space… That’s why we handed the probe into all such cases to the National Investigation Agency (NIA),” state director general of police Suresh Arora said. “You never know how many such modules they have prepared for anti-national activities.”

      The alarm rang after police arrested five men who are said to be part of a module that had shot dead Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) members in Ludhiana, Dera Sacha Sauda followers and a Christian pastor between October 31 and November 7, 2017.

      These new-age militants have no trace of any Khalistani activity in at least three generations of their families. None of them is from households that suffered the worst during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. They also have no links to “victims” of Punjab’s violent insurgency in the 1980s and early 1990s.

      These militants weren’t even born when the riots happened after the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards on October 31, 1984. About 3,000 people were killed in the violence, mostly in New Delhi.

      In one module busted this August, police found an 18-year-old Ludhiana girl allegedly brainwashed through Facebook by fundamentalists in Canada and incited to kill Hindu leaders.

      Of the 45 suspects arrested so far from different modules, at least 20 are below 35. They are tech and social media savvy. The men have short hair and are clean shaven, though keeping a beard and growing long hair are among the basic tenets of Sikhism.
    Heavy police crackdown in the 1990s may have wiped out an armed campaign in Punjab by several Sikh groups for an independent country, Khalistan. But the Khalistani ideology has continued to fester among several fundamentalist Sikhs settled abroad.

    These people have limited appeal and support in Punjab, but intelligence agencies periodically warn of attempts to revive militancy in the state.

    Among the five suspects arrested on November 4, 2017, was Jagtar Singh aka Jaggi Johal, from the United Kingdom. He told police the Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF), a militant group with Harminder Singh Mintoo and Harmeet Singh ‘PhD’ as its top leaders, is doing the bidding of Pakistani spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) to recruit young Sikhs for anti-India activities. Police said the “targeted killing” approach was conceived in 2014 by the ISI. The four other arrested men — Jammu resident Jimmy Singh, Ramandeep, Hardeep Shera and Dharmendra Gugni — corroborated Jagtar’s statement.


    The 50-year-old Mintoo was arrested in November 2014 at the New Delhi airport after he was deported from Thailand. But Harmeet with the help of Babbar Khalsa International member Gursharan Bir Singh, who is also from the UK , continued recruiting youngsters to murder select targets. “PhD introduced me to Gursharan who ran a website called neverforget1984.com. I translated Punjabi material about Khalistan into English for the website. At his behest, I was given the responsibility of contacting young people for the cause,” Jagtar said in a statement to the police.

    According to the police, Jagtar is from a family of restaurateurs and was in India for his wedding when he was arrested in Jalandhar on November 4. He and his gang were busted after police caught Laddi, a cousin of Jimmy, for arms trading. The cousin named Jimmy and the police then traced all others in the network, one by one, according to a police officer.

    Jimmy met Jagtar in Glasgow, where the Jammu resident was working as a restaurant chef after his student visa expired. They became friends and Jagtar pressed him in 2015 to buy weapons from Jammu for “one of his friends in India who is a competitive shooter”, police said.

    Jimmy contacted Laddi, who apparently knew arms smugglers. Jagtar transferred £4,000 through Western Union to Laddi, a few days before he was arrested with a pistol procured illegally.

    Punjab Police then issued a “red corner notice” against Jimmy who was caught when he returned to India. Jimmy’s association with the module is through Jagtar while two other members — Shera and Ramandeep — were influenced directly by Gursharan. A police officer said Shera, a resident of Majri Kishnewali in Fatehgarh Sahib district, met KLF chief Mintoo during a holiday in Italy in 2013.

    “Shera knew nothing about Khalistan before that … After Mintoo’s arrest, Gursharan interacted with Shera via Skype and trained him too.” Shera is an ambidextrous sharpshooter who killed “targets” assigned to him by the KLF chief and would flee to Italy after every hit, according to the police.

    When he was arrested at a gym in Sirhind, his family wasn’t aware he was back in India. Police said his accomplice was Ramandeep, a Moga resident, who would drive a motorcycle, and Shera, riding pillion, would shoot pistols with both hands.

    Ramandeep, known among his friends as Canadian, was allegedly motivated by a KLF faction active in Canada. Gursharan brought the duo together in December 2015.

    According to investigators, the initial targets for these shooters were RSS members in Ludhiana, including retired Brigadier Jagdish Gagneja, the organisation’s Punjab unit vice president.

    “Gagneja’s killing was meticulously planned. Shera and Ramandeep visited the RSS leader’s house 13 times,” a DGP-rank officer said.

    Another target was the Dera Sacha Sauda, whose controversial chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh triggered outrage in 2007 when he appeared before a congregation attired as the 10th Sikh guru, Guru Gobind Singh.

    The militants killed a father and his son, both Dera followers, in Khanna.

    Pastor Sultan Masih in Salem Tabri of Ludhiana was shot dead following the handlers’ weird, hate-filled message to kill “a man in white clothes with a cross around his neck”.

    A cobbler, reportedly being questioned by the NIA in connection with the killing of Punjab’s Shiv Sena leader Durga Das Gupta, on Tuesday allegedly committed suicide by jumping into the Sirhind canal in Fatehgarh Sahib district. Passersby saw Rampal (52) jumping in the canal and informed the police. His body was fished out about two km downstream, the police said.

    His family members claimed that the NIA wanted to make Rampal a witness in the killing of Gupta and and he was fed up with constant questioning by the investigating agency.

    On November 30 last year, the Punjab government handed over seven cases, including killing of right wing and religious leaders to the NIA keeping in mind the possible “national and international ramifications” of a conspiracy behind the targeted killings in the state.

    Gupta (28) was killed by two motorcycle-borne assailants in April 2016 at Lalhedi chowk in Khanna. Earlier, the state government decided to transfer the killing cases to the NIA as the modus operandi in all of these cases was the same.

    According to officials, it was found that inter-state as well as international perpetrators, handlers, actors and a militancy angle were involved in the criminal conspiracy, to disturb the peace and communal harmony in the border state, by selectively targeting leaders of certain groups.

    The Punjab government and the NIA has agreed that the probe needed to be more broad-based as the handlers, conspirators and financers in the targeted killing cases operated from countries such as the UK, Canada and Italy, officials said.

    The police had last year arrested five persons, including UK citizen Jagtar Singh Johal, in connection with the targeted killings of leaders of the RSS, Shiv Sena and other outfits in the state between January 2016 and October 2017.

    The seven cases handed over to the NIA include the April 2016 Khanna killing of Durga Das Gupta, the president of labour service wing of Shiv Sena, Punjab, the January 2017 killing of Amit Sharma the Zila Pracharak Hindu Takht in Ludhiana, the February 2017 killing of Dera Sacha Sauda followers Satpal Kumar and his son Ramesh Kumar in Khanna and the July 2017 killing of Christian Pastor Sultan Masih in Ludhiana.

    Other cases handed over to the NIA include January 2016 firing on an RSS Shakha at Kidwai Nagar and February 2016 firing on Amit Arora, Local Hindu Leader. The incidents took place in Ludhiana.
