New Delhi, December 31

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today registered a case against Jaswinder Singh Multani, a Germany-based alleged operative of the Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), and his associates for motivating and recruiting youths in Punjab for anti-India activities and attempting to revive terrorism in the state.

An NIA spokesperson said the case had been registered under Sections 120B and 121A of the IPC and Sections 10, 13, 17, 18 and 18B of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967. He said, “The case relates to criminal conspiracy hatched by Multani with other pro-Khalistani elements for radicalising, motivating and recruiting youths in Punjab on ground and through social media.”

They had been involved in raising funds to procure arms by using smuggling networks in Punjab to revive terrorism, the official said, adding that Multani had also been in contact with ISI operatives for carrying out terror attacks in Mumbai and other parts of the country.

Another official said as Multani had been detained in Germany, the registration of the case would help the government take requisite action for the SFJ operative’s extradition to India.
