New Delhi: The National Investigative Agency (NIA) has registered a case against ‘listed terrorist’ Gurpatwant Singh Pannun over video threat to passengers flying Air India. The Khalistani terrorist had shared a video where he had threatened the passengers of Air India with dire consequences. Pannun had issued a threat to blow up an Air India flight on November 19, the day when the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup was played.
For the unversed, Pannun, the founder of the banned outfit Sikhs For Justice (SFJ), released a video where he was seen threatening India with a terror attack.
"We are asking the Sikh people not to fly via Air India on November 19. There will be a global blockade. On November 19, don't travel by Air India, or your life will be in danger," the Khalistani leader said while repeatedly referring to the cricket world cup as the "world terror cup."
This is not the first time that Pannun has raised the terror threat bogey. From warning Hindu Canadians to leave Canada to attacking the Narendra Modi Stadium in Gujarat, Pannun has been wanting to become the face of the Khalistani separatist movement running parallel from Ottawa. Here's the list of threats issued by Pannun:
Amritsar-born Pannun has been under scrutiny by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) since 2019 when the agency filed its initial case against him. He stands accused of actively promoting and orchestrating acts of terrorism, as well as spreading fear and terror in Punjab and other parts of India through his threats and intimidation tactics.
