They include those located in Punjab’s Khanna and Moga. In Haryana, properties located in Yamuna Nagar and Kurukshetra were searched. Moga Police was also present along with NIA. It is being told that an inquiry was made by the NIA regarding any funding. The raids were conducted in close coordination with the Punjab Police.

The NIA move comes two days after the agency on Monday announced registration of a case against SFJ’s Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, who in his latest viral video criticized Air India passengers and the airline amid the global lockdown and closure of its operations from November 19. Pannun was booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

“Pannun is the self-proclaimed General Counsel of the illegal ‘unlawful association’ SFJ, and he is once again in controversy after the release and circulation of video messages on various social media platforms, in which he urged Sikhs not to fly,” The NIA said in a statement.

“On November 19 and thereafter, many have claimed to have faced threat to their lives if they flew Air India flights.”Pannun had also threat that Air India would not be allowed to fly in the world. Pannun’s threats led to massive high alert and investigations by security forces in Canada, India and some other countries where Air India operates.
