Kuala Lumpur, Jul 29: The Malaysian government has denied a report from India that a Sikh militant group has set up a base outside the national capital and at least four militants were hiding there, on Wednesday, Jul 28.
Federal Special Task Force department director Commissioner Mohamed Fuzi Harun said that, "We can confirm there is no such group based here."
"There is no evidence to support a claim by the Punjab Police that the Sikh separatist group Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) has set up base outside Kuala Lumpur," a senior police officer said.
On Wednesday, Jul 28, a media report from New Delhi, stated that Punjab Police believed KLF had set up base outside Kuala Lumpur with at least four of its members hiding in Malaysia.
Information on the KLF base in Malaysia was obtained following the arrest of a suspected militant in Punjab, on Monday, Jul 26.
Intelligence agencies suspect that Sikh militants based outside Punjab are preparing to create mayhem in New Delhi before the Commonwealth Games in Oct, the report from India said.
