Grenade like those made in Pakistan army factory: Captain Amarinder Singh | India News

AMRITSAR: An initial probe has indicated that the grenade used by the two unidentified assailants to target the Nirankari congregation at Adliwal village near Amritsar on Sunday morning was similar to the ones being manufactured by the Pakistani army ordnance factory, Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh revealed on Monday.

Punjab police had recovered a similar HG-84 grenade from a terror module busted last month. “This indicates a high probability of the involvement of inimical forces from across the border,” Amarinder said. “Prima facie, this appears to be an act of terror by separatist forces, organised with the involvement of ISI-backed Khalistani or Kashmiri terrorist groups,” he said.

However, he warned people not to link the grenade attack with the Nirankari-Sikh clash on Baisakhi in 1978 that left 13 Sikhs dead and sparked a wave of terrorism in Punjab in the 1980s. “The 1978 Nirankari clash was a religious issue while this is a clear incident of terrorism and no one should see the attack in the context of the 1978 issue,” the CM cautioned. “This has been carried out to create panic. There is no religious link to it.”

According to security agencies, Khalistani and Kashmiri militants have been trying to foment trouble in Punjab, which shares a 553km border with Pakistan.
