MP’s Twitter account also blocked
In this sequence, the Twitter account of Lok Sabha MP from Punjab Simranjit Singh Mann was also blocked. This action was taken after Simranjit had said provocative things while condemning the ongoing police operation against Amritpal and other Khalistan supporters. Talking to CNN-News18, Mann said, ‘Carrying weapons is a common practice among Sikhs. He hasn’t done anything wrong. A mountain made of sesame seeds is being made.

IED training to youth
Indian dossiers handed over to Britain show Khanda, Amritpal Singh and their associates as radicals, training youths to make and use Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). He said, ‘Khanda is also close to Paramjit Singh Pamma (associated with Babbar Khalsa International) and is known for conducting ideological radical training classes to mislead Sikh youth. One of his deadly aims is to destabilize Punjab through ideological education. He has a great influence on Amritpal.
