Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence was the real mastermind of the grenade attack on Nirankari Bhawan in Amritsar three days back, Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh said on Wednesday, adding that the case has been solved.
Three people were killed and 20 injured when two masked bike-borne men forced their way into the prayer hall in Adliwal village of Amritsar on Sunday and threw the grenade on the crowd.
The chief minister showed pictures of the two accused and said that one of the two, named Bikramjit Singh (26) has been arrested and his associate, Avtar Singh will be arrested soon.
He said Khalistan Liberation Force chief Harmeet PhD is the real mastermind of attack on Namdhari congregation. He is already the prime suspect accused of strategising the targeted killings of Punjab’s some socio-religious leaders in 2016-17.
“The person who is the mastermind is Inter-Services Intelligence. These (Harmeet Singh ‘PhD’ alias Happy) are only touts which they were using,” he said.
“This is the type of grenade which has been taken from other modules. This is the one being used against forces in Kashmir. This one is made under license by Pakistan ordnance factory and is filled with pellets,” he said.
