A low-intensity explosion at the Tarn Taran Police Sanjha Kendra in Punjab was reported on Saturday morning.

A low-intensity explosion at the Tarn Taran Police Sanjha Kendra in Punjab was reported on Saturday morning. The police determined that it was a Rocket Propelled Granade (RPG) strike, and the SFJ has since claimed responsibility.

As the state police chief declared that a complaint had been filed under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), a group of Khalistani militants, claimed responsibility for the attack, forensic teams were working on the scene.

After assessing the situation, Punjab DGP Gaurav Yadav told media, “An RPG has hit the Police Subidha Center. A UAPA-related FIR has been filed.” Additionally, the forensic team has arrived at the scene. To piece together what happened, we are tying up all the loose ends.

He claimed that there are obvious signs of a plan by foreign actors to bleed India dry by a thousand wounds.

“We’ll look into SFJ’s assertion. We’ll look at every aspect and theory. In order to quickly apprehend the true offenders, handlers and operators in Pakistan, as well as the individuals with whom they have contact in Europe and North America, are being investigated ” he stated.

He also urged regular people to work with the police to apprehend the culprits without showing fear. The DGP promised complete safety for the people of Punjab, the police stations, and all other facilities.

The Aam Aadmi Party administration led by Bhagwant Mann has come under fire from the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party for the attack on the police station on Saturday. They claim that the law and order apparatus in Punjab has broken down.
