India’s NIA declares 10 lakh reward for information on Khalistani leader

New Delhi, July 23 (KMS): India’s notorious National Investigation Agency (NIA) has declared a reward of Rs 10 lakh for information on Canada-based Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) chief, Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

The probing agency accused Nijjar, who is currently living in Surrey, of involvement in the conspiracy to kill a Hindu priest in the Jalandhar city of Indian Punjab.

It said that he was also promoting the Sikhs representative organization Sikhs for Justice’s agenda of creation of Kahlistan, a separate homeland for Sikhs in India.

Earlier this month, the NIA had filed a charge sheet against Nijjar, Arshdeep Singh, Kamaljeet Sharma and Ram Singh. The agency said a conspiracy was hatched by Arshdeep Singh and Nijjar, both based in Canada, to disturb peace and disrupt the communal harmony in Punjab by killing the priest, Kamaldeep Sharma, in Jalandhar’s Bhar Singh Pura village.

“The arrested accused Kamaljeet Sharma and Ram Singh aka Sona had shot at the victim Kamaldeep Sharma…,” the agency had said.
