Terror Module Busted in Punjab, Probe Reveals Use of Drones
With the arrest of four people, the Punjab Police on Sunday, 22 September, claimed to have busted a terror module of the Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF), backed by a group based in Pakistan and Germany.
Police said the terror group was conspiring to unleash a series of strikes in Punjab and adjoining states.
A huge cache of arms, including five AK-47 rifles, pistols, satellite phones and hand grenades, was seized from them.
Given the international links and ramifications of the conspiracy, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has decided to hand over further investigation to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), an official spokesperson said.
Punjab DGP Dinkar Gupta said the four members of the module were arrested from the outskirts of Chohla Sahib village in Tarn Taran district of Punjab on Sunday.
