Shillong, September 28: The Delhi Police have taken legal action following the discovery of pro-Khalistani graffiti beneath the Kashmiri Gate flyover. On Thursday, an official stated that a case has been registered under the appropriate sections of the IPC.
As per IANS, a video surfaced on Wednesday, revealing instances of defacement through graffiti. Based on signage boards visible in the video, an extensive search was conducted in North District. Graffiti was subsequently discovered on the Yudhister Setu flyover while traveling from Seelampur towards Kashmere Gate, as confirmed by a senior police official.
The FIR has been filed under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Public Property Act. A comprehensive investigation into the matter is now underway.
Previously, in August, the Delhi Police Crime Branch apprehended two individuals from Punjab in connection with defacing walls at five Delhi Metro stations with pro-Khalistani messages. The accused, identified as Pritpal Singh (also known as Kaka, age 30) and his associate Rajvinder (alias Kale), have affiliations with the banned terror outfit SFJ.
They were allegedly promised USD 7,000 for the job by SFJ handler Gurpatwant Singh Pannun. The defaced metro station walls bore slogans such as “Delhi Banega Khalistan” and “Khalistan Zindabad.” Additionally, a government school wall in Nangloi was vandalized. A video purportedly released by the banned organization Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) showcased the defaced metro station walls.
