NIA arrests 6 accused during Punjab, Haryana raids in Khalistan Tiger Force case

Six suspects have so far been detained for their suspected involvement in terrorist operations in India after searches carried out by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) at ten locations in Punjab and Haryana in connection with the Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF).
During the raids, some damning items were also taken. Yesterday, the NIA searched the homes of the terrorist Arshdeep Singh Dala and his close friend and runaway, Manpreet Singh alias Peeta.
“Several incriminating materials including digital devices were seized during the raids conducted as part of the NIA’s crackdown on ‘individual terrorists’ and terrorist outfits engaged in criminal/terrorist activities in India. A total of six persons have been so far arrested in the case,” the NIA statement said.
The probe revealed that Dala, as well as his associates based in different countries including Manpreet Peeta in the Philippines, are continuously recruiting new cadres in India to carry out the activities of the banned terrorist organisation Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF).
“They are raising funds for the organisation through extortion and other means, and carrying out smuggling of arms, ammunition and explosives from across the border,” the statement added.
NIA conducted these searches in connection with a criminal conspiracy to raise funds for the banned terrorist organization Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) for carrying out terrorist activities.
Earlier, the NIA had registered a suo moto case on August 20 last year under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.
