Authorities on Sunday morning removed flags with ‘Khalistani symbols’ found tied to the main gate and boundary wall of the Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly in Dharamshala.
Kangra SP Khushal Sharma said the incident might have taken place late night or early morning. “We have removed the Khalistan flags from the Vidhan Sabha gate. It could be an act of some tourists from Punjab. We are going to register a case today, “she said.
The yellow flags were seen put up at the assembly gates as well as boundary walls. ‘Khalistan’ was also seen written in Punjabi on the boundary walls.
According to reports, the Himachal government has flagged increasing cases related to terrorism modules and has increased vigilance and security in view of it.
Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur had said that the continuous activation of terrorist modules in neighboring states and being caught with heavy weapons is worrying. The state has also increased surveillance regarding precautionary security. There will be additional guard posted on the borders of Himachal, News18 Hindi reported.
