A senior official said ISI is pushing morphed videos of Punjab and Kashmir to create unrest and added that December 23 blast at the Ludhiana court complex showed it was the handiwork of ISI in support of pro-Khalistan groups.
New Delhi [India], January 25 (ANI): With an aim to carry out terrorist attacks on Republic Day and derail elections in five states, Pakistan's spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has reactivated its Kashmir-Khalistan (K2) desk to bring pro-Khalistan and anti-India supporters in Kashmir at a common platform, said a senior official in Delhi Police.
On Tuesday, the Delhi Police has pasted posters with names and pictures of suspected terrorists belonging to the Al-Qaeda terror group and banned terrorist outfits of pro-Khalistan in central Delhi.
A senior official said that the idea behind the K2 desk is to exploit sentiments in Punjab and Kashmir. Intelligence agencies says around 350 terrorists are ready to infiltrate India. The videos released by pro-Khalistan terrorist organisations push the part of the K2 plan and is backed by ISI.
In a recent video released by Gurpatwant Singh Pannu of banned Khalistani organisation 'Sikhs For Justice' (SFJ), he had shared the screen with a burqa-clad woman in the video. The woman, in her message, urged "Kashmiri Freedom Fighters" to leave the Valley and reach Delhi on January 26 to free Kashmir and Khalistan."
The purported video of SFJ also featured a picture of terrorist Burhan Wani, who was killed in an encounter in Kashmir. Pannu claimed that the burqa-clad woman is a Muzaffarabad- (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) based woman "activist".
The official added that ISI is pushing morphed videos of Punjab and Kashmir to create unrest. They have been keeping a tap on social media, warning people to report such videos and not propagate them. He added that December 23 blast at the Ludhiana court complex showed it was the handiwork of ISI in support of pro-Khalistan groups.
On Friday, the government banned 35 YouTube channels and multiple social media accounts for spreading 'anti-India' content. The blocked social media accounts of Instagram, YouTube, Facebook had 1.2 crore subscribers and over 130 crore views.
The controversial 'toolkit' during the farmers' protest was also connected to K2, claimed Delhi police. (ANI)
