Is India Chasing Khalistani Over Ground Workers in the UK?

Published

on

Has the Indian Government started to chase Khalistani over-ground workers and curb radical movements in the UK? Recently, Britain’s counter-terrorism conducted a series of raids in connection with ‘militant activity’ and fraud offences in India on homes in central England. Though the officials have not yet released any information about the raid, a Sikh outfit based in the UK has issued a statement saying Indian police is targeting Khalistani activists through the British police.

According to TheWeek.in, the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit (WMCTU) began probe covered addresses in Coventry, Leicester and Birmingham, where searches remain ongoing and no arrests have been made so far.

“Detectives are searching a number of properties as part of a West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit (WMCTU) investigation. The residential addresses in Coventry, Leicester and Birmingham are being searched by WMCTU with the support of East Midlands Special Operations Unit – Special Branch,” a statement by West Midlands Police said.

“The searches are in connection with allegations of extremist activity in India and fraud offences. No-one has been arrested,” said the statement.

While the security forces have not issued any further information on the nature of the raids or the suspects targeted in the operation, a UK-based Sikh outfit issued a statement expressing concern that “Indian police officers may be in the UK and could be targeting Sikh activists through British police”.

Sikh Federation UK, a group that campaigns for the creation of an independent Sikh state, said: “We have just held a very successful 35th Annual International Sikh Convention in the West Midlands and Indian police officers here in the UK would have picked up and no doubt raised concerns with the level of support we are receiving during our lobbying and political activity for an independent Sikh State, Khalistan.”
