Doubts have been raised that this incident may have links with the revival of the Khalistani movement. In December 2018, the interrogation of the suspected terrorist Shabnamdeep Singh has revealed detailed plans of reviving Khalistani militancy in the state of Punjab. Khalistan Gadar Force is allegedly being formed under the guidance of Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI.
