New Delhi: NIA officials yesterday conducted raids at 14 locations in Punjab and Haryana in connection with the attack on the Indian Embassy in San Francisco.
On March 19, supporters of Khalistan attacked the Indian Embassy in San Francisco, USA. 2 Khalistan flags were flown in the embassy compound with pro-Khalistan slogan. These flags were immediately removed.
Subsequently, on July 2, supporters of Khalistan tried to set fire to the same embassy in San Francisco. The attack followed the killing of Khalistan separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada.
