Delhi Metro Stations Shocked by Pro-Khalistan Slogans: Authorities Launch Thorough Investigation, Evoking Resilience and Vigilance

Delhi Police Launch Probe into Pro-Khalistan slogans found at 2 Delhi metro stations

New Delhi: Pro-Khalistan slogans found at 2 Delhi metro stations. Authorities launched a police inquiry after discovering pro-Khalistan messages inscribed on pillars at two Delhi metro stations, Karol Bagh and Jhandewalan.
The slogans, attributed to supporters of Sikhs For Justice (SFJ), a proscribed Sikh separatist organization operating from the United States, prompted immediate attention from law enforcement.
The Delhi police have initiated legal action by filing a First Information Report (FIR) and have secured CCTV footage from Delhi Metro authorities to assist in their probe.
A security guard, upon arriving for duty at a nearby building on Sunday morning, noticed black-painted slogans on the pillars of the metro station. “I began my shift at 8 am and observed inscriptions in black paint on the metro station pillars,” the guard reported.
