Police arrest 3 SFJ Members for writing pro-Khalistani slogans at Delhi metro stations

Three operatives of the banned separatist group SFJ were arrested for writing pro-Khalistan slogans in public areas of Delhi and Bathinda.

Punjab police has arrested three people accused of being members of the banned Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) group. The arrests occurred on Tuesday in connection with pro-Khalistan slogans discovered inscribed on public property in Delhi and Bathinda, Punjab.

Authorities suspect the arrested individuals are SFJ operatives, a separatist group that seeks the establishment of an independent Sikh state known as Khalistan. Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the group’s head, lives in the United States and has been branded a terrorist by the Indian government.

The arrests followed the discovery of pro-Khalistan slogans on government buildings in Bathinda on April 27th. Similar phrases were later discovered on pillars at metro stations in Delhi on May 9th, sparking an investigation by local police.

Officials assume that the slogans were scrawled at night to avoid detection. A security officer at one of Delhi’s metro stations reported spotting the graffiti on Sunday morning.

The Indian government has already taken action against the SFJ and Pannun. The group is prohibited in India, and the government has blocked Pannun’s assets.
