With less than week remaining before the Kartarpur corridor is opened for Indian pilgrims to celebrate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, Intelligence agencies have spotted terrorist training activities in the border district of Narowal in Pakistan’s Punjab province, the same district where Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara is situated, reports Times Of India.
According to the intelligence reports, many men and women are undergoing training in those camps.
The corridor connects Dera Baba Nanak Sahib in Gurdaspur district of Indian Punjab with the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara located in Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab.
Another major concern is that Pakistan wants to use Kartarpur corridor to exploit Sikh sentiments to support Khalistan agenda in India. Also many Sikhs from other parts of the world will be visiting and many could be Khalistan sympathiers who will likely come into contact with Inter Service Intelligence (ISI).
The intelligence agencies are also keeping an eye on Sikhs for Justice, whose propaganda through digital media and activities abroad have been a matter of concern.
Also security agencies in India has requested the Punjab Police to impose a ban on the use and possession of Pakistan SIM cards, as there is spillage of Pakistan mobile network up to 3-4 km inside Indian territory and the network can be used by drug smugglers and those involved in anti-national activities by using Pakistani SIM cards.
