A day after the Gurdaspur terror attack, government sources said that after a “detailed analysis”, security and intelligence officials arrived at the conclusion that the attack was part of “systematic efforts by Pakistan’s ISI to revive militancy in Punjab.”

Around a week ago, MHA officials had a meeting with Punjab DGP and state Chief Secretary on inputs gleaned from the interrogation of top Khalistani terrorists which suggested that the ISI had volunteered to send fidayeen attackers from Pakistan to Punjab.

“Interrogation reports of Jagtar Singh Tara of the Khalistan Tiger Force, who was extradited from Thailand, and Harminder Singh, alias Mintoo, of the Khalistan Liberation Force, reveal that the ISI had offered to send fidayeen attackers from across the border to create unrest in Punjab and wanted some logistical support from locals,” sources said.
