Chandigarh: A day after conducting raids in Punjab and Haryana, the National Investigation Agency’s investigation revealed that Canada-based terrorist Arshdeep Singh Dala and his associates based in various countries, including Manpreet Pita in the Philippines, were continuously recruiting new cadres in India to carry out the activities of the banned terrorist organization Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF).
They are raising funds for the banned terrorist organisation through extortion and other means and smuggling arms, ammunition and explosives from across the border, the national agency probe said.
The NIA team on Tuesday carried out searches at nine locations in Punjab and one in Haryana in connection with a criminal conspiracy to raise funds for the banned terror outfit Khalistan Tiger Force and smuggle arms, ammunition and explosives for it from across the border.
