New Delhi, October 14

Amid reports of ISI attempts to revive Sikh militancy in Punjab, the NIA today said Khalistan Liberation Front (KLF) was conspiring to disrupt communal harmony in the state with support from across the border.

Speaking at a conference of the chiefs of Anti-Terror Squads, NIA Inspector-General Alok Mittal said the attempts were being funded by Khalistan sympathisers in the UK, Canada, Australia and France. He said a list of 130 terror suspects had been shared with states for necessary action. On jihadi activities, Mittal said 127 persons had been arrested for IS links and most had confessed to being influenced by speeches of preacher Zakir Naik. — TNS
