Punjab CID DSP captured in sting operation saying protestors were not farmers, but Khalistan supporters: Himanta Biswa Sarma

Guwahati, January 13

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday termed the security breach of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a conspiracy to assassinate the Prime Minister, adding that a sting operation involving police officials had captured the CID DSP Sukhdev Singh saying that the protestors who had gathered were not farmers, but Khalistan supporters.

“The security breach of Prime Minister was not a mere co-incidence, spontaneous or something that happened suddenly. It was a pre-planned, sponsored and a bloody conspiracy against the Prime Minister. In a sting operation, Punjab CID DSP Sukhdev Singh was heard saying that protestors were not farmers, but Khalistan supporters. Conspiracy details were given to the Senior SSP on January 2 itself. Even when the incident happened on January 5, CID sent information to the higher officials regularly,” said Sarma addressing a press conference.

Sarma said that PM chose to travel to Ferozpur via road after a helicopter could not be used due to bad weather and questioned how the protestors came to know about the Prime Minister’s travel via road so quickly. Taking potshot at Punjab government, he added, “The incident happened 10 kilometers away from Punjab-Pakistan border.

The area was within the range of drones, snipers and missiles. But still Punjab government failed to make any arrangements for PM’s security and on top of that, they planned such a conspiracy against him as it becomes clear from these sting operations.” Sarma questioned Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi that if he could not come due to getting in contact with a COVID-19 patient, how could he conduct a press conference without a mask the very next day.
