5. Weapons are suspected to have been stored illegally in several ‘Waris Panjab De’ detox centers and a gurdwara in Amritsar.

6. The youth admitted to the detox centers were reportedly indoctrinated earlier and pushed towards the “gun culture”.

7. The youths were brainwashed to choose the path of slain terrorist Dilawar Singh who acted as a human bomb killing former Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh.

8. The revelation is striking in the context that Amritpal recently threatened Union Home Secretary Amit Shah that he will suffer the same fate as former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi if he tries to stop the Khalistan movement.

9. Amritpal used to attend “Shaheedi Samagam” (commemorations) for slain terrorists, where he referred to them as so-called “martyrs of the Panth” and glorified the use of weapons.

10. “Amritpal Singh, a non-resident Indian who worked as a truck driver in Dubai, is an ISI agent who came into contact with the Pakistani espionage agency while living in the United Arab Emirates. He was told to motivate naïve young Sikhs in the name of religion. There was an understanding that the ISI will spend money, and by getting the Sikhs behind it on behalf of Khalistan, it would have a say in Punjab,” said a key intelligence officer, who asked not to be named.
