Khalistani separatists’ nexus with other groups to figure

Home Minister Amit Shah is
likely to inaugurate National
Investigation Agency’s conference
in New Delhi on October
6 which will be attended by
senior officers of multiple
agencies including Intelligence
Bureau (IB), Research &
Analysis Wing (RAW) besides
top police officers from
Jammu and Kashmir and
Punjab and some other States
and UTs.
The conference among other
issues will discuss measures to
bust nexus of Khalistani militants
with criminals, gangsters
and Kashmiri militants, if any, to
ensure that they are not able to
carry out any kind of activities
to disturb peace.
The meeting comes days
after the NIA launched nationwide
crackdown on Khalistani
militants in different States and
Union Territories by conducting
raids on their hideouts and confiscating
property of top brass
including those based in
Officials told the Excelsior
that three to four senior police
and Intelligence officers from
Jammu and Kashmir have been
invited to the conference to discuss
a host of issues. Similarly,
police officers from Punjab,
New Delhi, Chandigarh,
Haryana and some other States
have also been called to join the
Union Home Minister Amit
Shah is likely to inaugurate the
conference and address it.
Top officials from the
Union Ministry of Home
Affairs (MHA), NIA, IB, RAW
and some other agencies will
also address the meeting, the
officials said.
There have been certain
instances in which Jammu
Police have intercepted consignments
of weapons and cash
being transported from Punjab
to Kashmir on Jammu-
Pathankot and Jammu-Srinagar
National Highways and seized
them. In one such consignment,
nearly Rs 15 lakh cash and arms
were seized at Nagrota which
were sent by the Khalistani militants
for the Lashkar operatives
in the Kashmir valley.
In the same case, the State
Investigation Agency (SIA) had
recently attached property of
Amarbir Singh alias Gopi Mahal
son of Rajwinder Singh of Ram
Tirath Mahal in Amritsar district
of Punjab as he was absconding.
He was instrumental in sending
hawala money for the Kashmiri
militants from Punjab.
“Several other issues will
also be taken up in the conference,”
the officials said, adding
the focus has recently shifted to
the Khalistani militants after
threats hurled from Canada.
However, as per the officials,
there has been no major role of
the Khalistani militants in fanning
trouble in Jammu and
Kashmir barring few cases of
supply of arms and hawala
money at the behest of
Pakistan’s Inter-Services
Intelligence (ISI). In Pakistan
and PoJK, a nexus has been
noticed among Kashmiri and
Khalistani militants, they said.
The NIA meeting, as per the
officials, will also deliberate
speedy investigations of militancy
cases at various places
including Jammu and Kashmir.

A number of high profile
cases are being investigated by
the NIA in Jammu and
Kashmir including the killings
of seven civilians from minority
community at Dhangri in
Rajouri district. Security officials
haven’t yet said that the
militants involved in Dhangri
killings have been eliminated
though a number of militants
have been killed in Rajouri,
Poonch and Reasi districts in
the recent past.
There have been disturbing
reports that Pakistan is now
sending militants into Jammu
and Kashmir who are trained in
martial arts so that they can take
on security personnel even in the
absence of weapons.
“It has come to the notice of
security agencies that one of the
militants killed in Reasi who hailed
from Pakistan occupied Jammu
Kashmir (PoJK) was trained in
martial arts,” the officials said.
They added that there could
be some more militants who are
trained in martial arts and might
have infiltrated into Jammu and
