Amritsar terror attack: ISI-based Khalistani terror groups hand suspected
Amritsar : Two men on motorcycle threw grenade at a Nirankari congregation in Rajasansi area in Punjab's Amritsar district on Sunday, killing three people and injuring over 20.
The Punjab Director General of Police Suresh Arora, who termed it as a 'terror act', is investigating all angles of the incident to locate and trace down the terrorists.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh suspects this to be an act done by ISI-based Khalistani/Kashmiri terror groups.
"The possibility of involvement of ISI-based Khalistani/Kashmiri terror groups cannot be ruled out. Police teams are investigating various angles," the Chief Minister said in a statement.
The Chief Minister said he would ensure that the culprits were apprehended.
"Though the state had been hit by a series of cases of targeted attacks since 2015/16, this was the first attempt, in a long time, to disturb the peace in the state through indiscriminate killings. Pakistan is continuing with its nefarious activities to disturb the state's peace," Amarinder Singh said.
The attack on Sunday happened amid a high alert issued on November 14 by the Punjab Police regarding the movement of 6-7 terrorists in the state.
