Khalistan Camp in Canada Plotting Attacks in India

Punjab's intelligence agencies have reportedly alerted the Canadian government on pro-Khalistan terrorists running a camp near Mission city in British Columbia to carry out strikes in Punjab, The Times of India reported.

According to the report, Canadian Sikh Hardeep Nijjar has taken over as the operational head of Khalistan Terror Force (KTF) and formed a module comprising Sikh youths to carry out the attacks.

Making a reference to the recent Pathankot airbase attack, the report to Justin Trudeau's government said that Nijjar "was to arrange weapons from Pakistan but due to high alert on the border in the wake of Pathankot incident, it could not materialise", according to The Times of India.

Nijjar, a Canadian Sikh accused of being involved in the 2007 Shingaar cinema blast is a wanted terrorist in Punjab, International Business Times. He has been staying in Surrey since 1995 on a Canadian passport.

In April, according to a Hindustan Times report, the Indian government had intelligence inputs indicating that Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was "attempting to whip up support for Khalistan" in Canada.
