NIA files charge sheet against 6 SFJ members for hoisting Khalistani flag on administrative building in Punjab on Independence Day eve

The SFJ members had hoisted the Khalistan flag on the DC office complex in Moga in Punjab on 14th August last year

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has filed a charge sheet before NIA Special Judge, Mohali, Punjab against six accused in a case relating to the hoisting of a Khalistani flag at DC office complex in Moga by members of Khalistani group ‘Sikhs for Justice’. The accused had hoisted the Khalistani flag on the government building on 14th August last year, removing the national flag.

The charge sheet has been filed under section 120B r/w 109, 124A, 153B, 201, 204, 212 of the Indian Penal Code, Section 10 and 13 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and section 2 of Prevention of Insult to National Honour Act, 1971.

The six accused named in the charge sheet are Inderjit Singh, Jaspal Singh @Ampa, Akashdeep Singh @Munna, Jagwinder Singh @Jagga, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun and Harpreet Singh Rana @Ranjit Singh @Harmeet Singh.

The accused had torn the Indian flag hoisted on the building

It has reportedly been revealed in the investigation that the accused Inderjit Singh, Jaspal Singh and Akashdeep Singh of the SFJ conspired with Gurpatwant Singh Pannun and Rana Singh who belong to the same organisation. As per the investigation, Inderjit Singh, Jaspal Singh and Akashdeep Singh were involved in hoisting Khalistani flag at DC Office Complex on August 14, 2020 and tearing the Indian flag in the premises of DC office. They had allegedly recorded the incident and shared the video with Gurpatwant Singh Pannun and Rana Singh of the SFJ who broadcast the video on various social media platforms like the YouTube, the US Media International and the SFJ channel to propagate the secessionist agenda of the SFJ.

Money was transferred to the two accused who hoisted the Khalistani flag

As per the investigation, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun and Rana Singh also sent fund through money transfer to Inderjit Singh and Jaspal Singh after the incident. Electronic devices like mobile phones, hard discs and laptops containing incriminating material were seized from the accused. Further investigation in the case is going on.

A day before the independence day celebrations, two pro-Khalistani miscreants had hoisted a Khalistani flag on the top of the administrative building in Moga. They had also removed the tricolour raised on the building. Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh had ordered the state police to arrest the culprits.

The accused had entered the Moga administrative complex with the employees who were reporting for duty in the morning. After entering the building, they had sneaked to the terrace of the building and hoisted the Khalistani flag and removed the tricolour which is hoisted permanently.

They made video of the incident and sent it to SFJ’s Pannun and Rana Singh which was broadcasted by them on various social media platforms like YouTube, US Media International and SFJ Channel to propagate the secessionist agenda of the SFJ and in support of Referendum-2020 for making a separate state of Khalistan, the NIA official said.
