Delhi Police has apprehended two individuals for painting pro-Khalistan slogans on the walls of several Delhi Metro stations in the run-up to the G20 Summit. The arrests were carried out by the Special Cell of Delhi Police in Punjab. The individuals are currently under interrogation.
The slogans, such as “Delhi Banega Khalistan” and “Khalistan Zindabad,” were discovered on the walls of metro stations including Shivaji Park, Madipur, Paschim Vihar, Udyog Nagar, and Maharaja Surajmal Stadium, as well as a government school wall in Nangloi on August 27. A video attributed to the banned organization Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) displayed defaced metro station walls.
In the video released by SFJ spokesperson Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, a message was conveyed to the G20 countries, stating that while they convene in Delhi on September 10, a Khalistan referendum will be organized in Canada. This incident mirrors a similar occurrence before Republic Day on January 19, when “anti-national” and “Khalistan-related” graffiti emerged on walls in West Delhi areas such as Vikaspuri, Janakpuri, Paschim Vihar, and Peeragarhi.
