The Himachal Pradesh Police with the help of Interpol will issue a Red Corner Notice against Gurpatwant Singh Pannu, the chief of the separatist group Sikh for Justice (SFJ). Investigation has found that Pannu is sending threatening messages using the web portal from USA. Now this major legal action is being taken against Pannu after the incident of raising Khalistan flags and sending threatening messages in the Dharamsala assembly complex. The government will soon prepare a charge sheet against Pannu and present it in the court as per the legal process in the relevant case. The state police headquarters on Monday wrote to Interpol seeking information about Pannu.
