OneIndia had earlier reported that the ISI funding the Punjab militant groups has been in the news for sometime. An intelligence bureau input revealed on June 8 that the ISI was ready to take into its fold 22 youth from Punjab and train them to launch terror strikes in India. For the ISI the biggest trump card are the Punjab militants. Since the days of their networks in Punjab being busted by KPS Gill, these persons have taken shelter in Pakistan.
There are four groups from Punjab who are itching to launch strikes in Punjab and revive militancy. The ISI has advised these militants to make Malaysia their home for now. Malaysia which houses terror modules of various other ISI sponsored groups will oversee the launch of the Punjab militants.
