Khalistani Terrorist Pannun’s Threat: ‘Will Attack Parliament On Or Before Dec 13’

New Delhi: Even as Parliament is holding its Winter Session, which began on Monday and will continue till December 22, Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun has released a video in which he said he would attack the Indian Parliament on or before December 13 following an alleged plot to kill him. December 13 will mark the 22nd anniversary of the Parliament attack by terrorists in 2001.

In the video which featured a poster of the 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru with the caption ‘Delhi Banega Khalistan‘ (Delhi will turn into Khalistan), Pannun said a conspiracy to kill him by Indian agencies had failed. He asserted he would respond by attacking the Parliament on or before December 13, India Today reported.

Security agencies are on high alert after Pannun’s threat video surfaced. Security agencies said the K-2 (Kashmir-Khalistan) desk of Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI had given directions to Pannun to further their agenda of propagating the anti-India narrative, the report added, quoting sources.

Notably, last month, The Financial Times, citing unnamed sources, reported that US authorities foiled a plot to kill Pannun and issued a warning to the Indian government over concerns it was involved in the plot. Pannun is the chief of US-based Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), which is banned in India, and is wanted by the Indian probe agencies.

US federal prosecutors also charged Indian national Nikhil Gupta of working with an Indian government employee in the foiled plot to kill Pannun. US prosecutors informed a Manhattan court that authorities in the Czech Republic arrested and detained Gupta.
