Punjab militancy would be launched from Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar
New Delhi, Dec 2: The revival of the Khalistan Movement in Punjab has been spoken about several times thanks to the number of alerts and intercepts that the Intelligence Bureau has put out. Now there is more confirmation about how the ISI is doing everything it can to revive the movement in Punjab.
The confirmation comes from Harminder Singh Mintoo who had recently escaped from a jail in Punjab only to be caught a day later. He says that there are four key cells of the Khalistan Liberation Force through which militancy in Punjab would be revived.
His interrogation details reveal that the cells at Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia are active. These cells that were set up by him, his handler Harmeet and the ISI were aimed at launching terrorists into Punjab in a bid to revive militancy in the state.
An officer part of the investigation informed OneIndia that Mintoo had revealed that he was in touch with Harmeet even from jail. They would speak about a jail break and how he needed to immediately travel to Pakistan and oversee the revival of the movement in Punjab.
He further told his interrogators that while the four cells would ensure that the terrorists are launched into India, there was one particular module in the UK which had taken care of the funding.
During the questioning he revealed the the name of an operative by the name Sandeep who would ensure that funds were raised and pumped into these modules
