Guwahati, Dec 7: The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) was reportedly alerted by the intelligence agencies about banned secessionist group Sikhs For Justice's (SFJ) plan to 'shut down' Indian embassies in London, New York and Toronto on December 10.
The pro-Khalistan quartet of Paramjit Singh Pamma, Gurmit Singh Bagga, Hardeep Singh Nijjar and Gurpatwant Singh Pannun has announced to shut down the Indian consulates. The farmers’ protests in India were supported by the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, UK MPs and representative of UN Secretary General.
The agencies got inputs about the SFJ's declaration through different internet sites where the group posted a mail regarding "shut down of Indian consulates in London, Birmingham, Frankfurt, Vancouver, Toronto, Washington DC, San Francisco and New York on December 10".
Pannun, the General Counsel of SFJ said that they have given the call for shutting down Indian consulates on UN Human Rights Day to expose India's 70-year policy of 'Sikh genocide to farmers' econocide' to the world community.
