Khalistan Terrorist Multani Arrested In Germany Thanks to Indian Pressure

In 2019, India had banned Sikh for Justice Outfit under the UA (P) Act for promoting separatist agenda and violence in Punjab. Their activities were aimed at creating a divide between communities and disturbing the peace and communal harmony.

On February 7, 2021, Punjab police arrested four local criminal belonging to the Tarn Taran, Amritsar and Ferozepur districts. 8 country-made pistols along with 8 magazines and 7 cartridges were recovered from them. These had been procured from MP based Sikligar Sikhs and others. Subsequently, Punjab police arrested another criminal, Jeevan Singh of Mansa, who was radicalised and motivated by Jaswinder Singh Multani to target a key farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajewal, president of BKU-Rajewal.

Multani also sent funds to Jeevan Singh for arranging locally made weapons for targeting Balbir Singh Rajewal, president of BKU-Rajewal being linked with left-wing communist ideology. 45-year-old Jaswinder Singh Multani is believed to be a close associate of SFJ founder Gurpatwant Singh Pannu and is reportedly involved in separatist activities.

Next in August 2021, Multani motivated Saroop Singh from Johal Dhaiwala of the Tarn Taran district, both were arrested. Multan had sent money through Western Union and sent two hand grenades (86P) at Amritsar-Harike road (Tarn Taran) from across the border and shared a photo of the location and asked him to collect them.

On December 23, an explosion at the District and Sessions court complex in Ludhiana claimed the life of one person, while five others were injured. The deceased was later identified as the attacker Gagandeep, a dismissed cop from Khanna in Punjab. This incident was found to have link with Multani. According to sources, Jaswinder Singh Multani was also planning to target Delhi and Mumbai. He had also conspired to kill farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajewal at Singhu border during the farmers’ protest. He also radicalised one Jeevan Singh to kill Rajewal.

Jeevan Singh was tracked by the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Delhi Police following which he was caught in Maharashtra. He was later handed over to the Punjab Police. On searching his phone, the agencies came to know that Jeevan Singh was in contact with Sikhs for Justice and Multani in Germany.

Now Jaswinder Singh Multani, a member of the banned separatist outfit Sikhs for Justice, has been finally detained in Germany for his alleged involvement in the December 23 Ludhiana court blast.

The arrest of banned Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) radical Jaswinder Singh Multani by German police is a culmination of hectic diplomacy by the Indian government with Berlin with New Delhi making it clear that it would hold Germany accountable if any bomb blast took place in Mumbai or Delhi.

According to officials based in Berlin and New Delhi, India provided actionable intelligence to the German embassy in Delhi to convince the German Federal Police about the urgency of the matter. Indian Embassy officials ensured that the German authorities understood the seriousness of the matter about an impending terror strike on Mumbai. It is understood that Multani had been able to send explosives to Mumbai with a terror team being assembled for the strike. While the SFJ terrorist is currently being interrogated by the German police, Indian security agencies and the MEA are totally tight-lipped on the matter.

The arrest of Multani is a huge step in bilateral relations as it will also force countries like the UK and Canada where such terrorist groups have been thriving to take action against Sikh separatists, who are being backed by the Pakistani deep state.

The deliberate inaction on part of the UK and Canada, despite their claim of being India’s strategic partners has become a huge irritant for India. One day when India loses patience, both these countries may receive a serious backlash from the Indian side. Both these countries with large Sikh populations are trying to fish in troubled waters. Multani recently come to notice of the security agencies for arranging and sending weapons consignments comprising explosives, hand grenades and pistols from across the border with the help of his Pakistan based operatives and arms smugglers. He was planning to carry out terrorist activities in Punjab by using the smuggled consignments.
