'Sikh militancy being fanned by ISI'
Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde yesterday voiced concern over Sikh militancy being fanned by the ISI (Pakistan spy agency) in Pakistan as well as the high quality of counterfeit Indian currency being pushed inside India from across the border.
Addressing the Chief Ministers’ Conference on security here, Shinde said there had been “significant development on the Sikh militancy front with its commanders in Pakistan under pressure to further the ISI terror plans”.
“Sikh youths are being trained in ISI facilities in Pakistan,” he said, adding that the interrogation of suspects has revealed the use of “jailed cadres and unemployed youth to unleash terror attacks”.
Shinde also said a large quantity of RDX and other explosives were finding their way into Punjab from across the border.
