Police denied specific threat to Hindu leaders

OpIndia reached out to Barjinder Singh, DSP City, Tarn Taran for more information on the matter. Singh denied any specific intelligence input of possible attack on Hindu leaders in the city. He said, “The reports of specific threat on Hindu leaders is incorrect. The security has been increased in view of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement of repealing the farm laws.” He added that the security had been further increased after the grenade attack outside the Army camp in Pathankot. When we asked about the media reports suggesting a threat to the security of Hindu leaders, he said, “I cannot comment on why they have published the report.”

Previous threats on RSS and Hindu leaders in Punjab

This is not the first time intelligence agencies gave input about possible terror attacks on RSS Shakhas and Hindu leaders in Punjab. In 2018, security for 900 Shakhas was increased amidst intelligence reports of possible terror attacks. At that time, special arrangements were made for RSS Shakhas in Pathankot and Gurdaspur.
