In the 1990s, Paramjit Singh Panjwar fled to Pakistan. Several attacks on Indian land were carried out by his group, the Khalistan Commando Force, including the one that resulted in the death of General Arun Vaidya, the Army chief, during Operation Blue Star.
One of India’s most wanted offenders and the leader of the terrorist group Khalistan Commando Force (KCF), Paramjit Singh Panjwar, was assassinated on Saturday, May 6, in Lahore, Pakistan.
The death of Panjwar was verified by Dal Khalsa leader Kanwar Pal Singh. According to our knowledge, he was shot and killed by two shooters while out on a morning stroll, said Kanwar Pal. He continued by saying that the Pakistani government had sent him Panjwar’s gunner, who opened fire on the gunmen, killing one and wounded the other.
What was the purpose of Paramjit Singh Panjwar’s residence in Lahore?
In 1960, Paramjit Singh Panjwar was born in the Panjwar village of Tarn Taran.From 1964 to 1986, when he enlisted in the Khalistan Commando Force. He joined the KCF in 1986, and Labh Singh, the organization’s commander and a distant relative of Panjwar, had a significant impact on him.
Manbir Singh Chaheru formed the KCF back in 1986. By carrying out bank robberies or kidnappings for ransom, the KCF earned money to create the independent state of Khalistan. The cash would be spent on high-tech weaponry. The organisation carried out several terrorist acts on Indian soil, including the assassination of Army commander General Arun Vaidya.
Immediately following Chaheru’s detention, Labh Singh, also known as Sukhdev Singh or Sukha Sipahi, assumed control. The KCF split into factions in the 1990s after Labh Singh’s passing, with Panjwar serving as the leader of one of them. Panjwar used to terrorise the Majha belt along the Indo-Pakistan border. Panjwar fled to Pakistan and has been residing there ever since as the security forces’ crackdown on Khalistanis grew more severe. Panjwar was frequently mentioned as one of the terrorists that India wanted Pakistan to extradite.
Panjwar has funded the KCF by trafficking heroin across international borders. The Union government claimed. He has been airing very seditious and separatist programming on Radio Pakistan with the intention of stirring up minorities against the Indian government. He continued to be involved in drug smuggling and serves as a vital link between terrorists and traffickers. The involvement of Panjwar in Punjab’s fake Indian currency and drug trade operations is widely known.
Seven of the FIRs filed against Panjwar between 1989 and 1990, which covered just one year, were for murder, and two were for violations of the TADA (Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act).
It is reported that his wife and children reside in Germany. The Punjab police made arrests in 2011 after discovering that Panjwar’s family had obtained counterfeit passports with the assistance of individuals in India.
