NIA lodges FIR against Khalistani extremist Gurpatwant Pannun over ‘Air India’ threat | India News


The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has registered a first information report (FIR) against ‘listed individual terrorist’ Gurpatwant Singh Pannun over his latest video threatening passengers flying with Air India on November 19.

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the founder of the banned Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), had earlier released a video where he urged Sikhs not to fly on Air India aircraft after November 19 as their lives could be under threat.

Pannun was designated an ‘individual terrorist’ by India on July 1, 2020. In September, an FIR was registered in Ahmedabad against him over threats linked to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. In the FIR, the cybercrime branch of the Ahmedabad police said several persons received threats from the chief of SFJ via a pre-recorded voice message sent from a foreign number. The threats were allegedly sent in response to the killing of Khalistan separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada in June.
