The RPG used in the attack on Police Intelligence Headquarters in Mohali, Punjab was actually to be used on Sidhu Moosewala. Gangster Lawrence, the main accused in Sidhu Moosewala murder, himself told this information to Delhi Police during remand. Lawrence’s Pakistani colleague Harvinder Singh Rinda, who provided this RPG, made a change at the last moment.
Their attempt was to attack Sidhu when he was in a public place during the elections or when he was addressing a rally, but there was a threat to the lives of Sidhu and other people present there.
Lawrence changed the decision due to fear of more deaths. Lawrence was fully prepared for this, but when he realized that many more lives could be harmed after this step. Therefore this decision was changed at the last moment. After which the idea of running it at the Intelligence Headquarters of Punjab Police was mooted. Which was completed with the help of Landa in October 2022.
RPG had reached India with the help of ISI
The RPG was brought across the border to India with the help of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). The help of smugglers was taken for this entire work. Rinda had allegedly roped in Lawrence gang members to execute the operation.
Further investigation revealed that Canada-based fugitive terrorist Lakhbir Singh Landa had collaborated with Rinda. Landa was also the second in command officer after Rinda.
CIA Grenade attack was also carried out on the office
Rindah was earlier linked with the grenade attack on the Criminal Investigation Agency (CIA) office in Nawanshahr, Punjab. Earlier this year, four suspected terrorists associated with Pakistan were arrested in Karnal, Haryana. Subsequently, the RPG attack in Mohali on May 9, 2022 was revealed to be a conspiracy hatched by Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) with the support of ISI and local gangsters.
The attackers, identified as Deepak of Surakhpur village in Haryana and a minor accomplice, were caught by the Special Cell of Delhi Police five months after the incident. After which it became clear that Rinda was also involved in this incident.
