Feb. 21 (IND) - Security has been tightened in the Jharkhand capital after US-based designated terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun threatened to disrupt the fourth Test match between India and England in Ranchi, officials said.

Pannun, who has been designated as a terrorist by the Home Ministry, has also appealed to the banned CPI (Maoist) through a video uploaded on social media to disrupt the match, officials said. The fourth Test will commence at the JSCA International International Stadium Complex here from February 23. The England team reached the city on Tuesday.

Pannun on radar of the National Investigation Agency since 2019:

Pannun has been on the National Investigation Agency’s radar since 2019, when the anti-terror federal agency registered its first case against the "designated individual terrorist", who has been spreading fear and terror in Punjab and elsewhere in in the country through threats and intimidation tactics.

Non-bailable warrants of arrest were issued against Pannun by the Special NIA Court on February 3, 2021, and he was declared a "Proclaimed Offender" on November 29 last year.

Tightening its noose around the US and Canada-based Pannun, the NIA had in September 2023 confiscated a house and land of the self-styled general counsel of the outlawed Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) outfit in Punjab's Amritsar and the Union Territory of Chandigarh.

India leading the series against England:

Despite losing the opening Test of the series, India, led by Rohit Sharma, have fought their way back in the series remarkably well. The hosts bottled a massive 190-run lead in Hyderabad to lose by 28 runs, thanks to the heroics from Ollie Pope and Tom Hartley.

However, India have fought back to register comprehensive 106-run victory in Vishakhapatnam, followed by a mammoth 434-run win in Rajkot. Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the 4th Test, while Virat Kohli and KL Rahul continue to be unavailable.

    Gurpatwant Singh Pannun is an American Lawyer specialising in Immigration Law, he is also the leading figure in North America for the peaceful campaign for Sikh Independence in India. American and Canadian authorities have uncovered plots by India to kill Sikh political leaders in North America. At least one Sikh political activist , Hardeep Singh Nijjar, has already been killed in the Canadian soil but the Americans were able to thwart an Indian attempt to kill this Sikh American Lawyer in America. An Indian with links to Indian Intelligence , Nikhil Gupta, is charged in a court in New York for attempting to have this American Lawyer killed by a “ hired hitman” who turned out to be an informant to an American law enforcement agency. The attempted murder trial is set begin shortly in New York and India is going to be exposed in the trial. So, Indians are vainly trying to undermine the trial by creating “ cock and bull stories “ about Pannun.

    I have question mister, why did an American sitting in American soil calling for seperation of india, ask him to divide the US , we have no problem. And don't call him peaceful activist , just see this statement and videos ,it is clearly not a peaceful way. And next time, If you see him, just tell him that what he and You are hoping for will never happen. ( A mother will do whatever she can to save her Child
