KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 6 (Bernama) -- Malaysian police are still waiting for their counterparts in India to update them on claims by Punjab police that four Sikh militants are hiding in Malaysia.

Federal police Special Task Force director (Operations/Anti-Terrorism) Datuk Mohamad Fuzi Harun said if the claims were true, Malaysian police needed the cooperation of the Indian police to track down the suspects.

"Malaysian police will not allow the country to be used as a sanctuary by any miltant group," he told reporters when met at the Police Academy in Cheras on Friday.

He added that Malaysian police's intelligence operations on the matter so far had found the claims, published on a blogsite, to be untrue.

The blog had claimed that Punjab police had intelligence that the four, said to be members of the Khalistan Liberation Front, were hiding in Malaysia.

No closure yet. We continue to watch and wait for the outcome. This story also connects the claim of Sikh terrorists hiding in Malaysia with the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

M’sian cops want proof from Punjab cops about Sikh separatist group

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian police want their Punjab counterpart to provide proof or evidence to back their claims that a Sikh separatist group called Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) had set up base in Malaysia.

Federal Special Task Force (Operations and Counter Terrorism) department director Comm Datuk Mohamed Fuzi Harun said their Indian counterparts should provide police here with identities on the suspected KLF members here.

“Checks on our side showed there are no KLF or similar groups active here or any arrests made on such members,” Comm Mohamed Fuzi said Friday after attending the graduation ceremony for 62 police officers who took up Masters in Social Science (Police Studies) and Diploma in Police Science studies at the Police Training College here in Cheras.

On July 28, a Bernama report from New Delhi stated that Punjab police believed KLF had set up base outside Kuala Lumpur, with at least four of its members hiding in Malaysia.

Information on the KLF base in Malaysia was allegedly obtained following the arrest of a suspected militant at a guesthouse in the Patiala district of Punjab.

They said the 22-year-old man was linked to a series of bombings in the state early this year.

Findings by police there revealed that he fled to Malaysia where he sought shelter from another wanted KLF militant who had been residing in Seremban for about a year.

Intelligence agencies suspect that Sikh militants based outside Punjab are preparing to create mayhem in New Delhi before the Commonwealth Games in October.

The KLF movement was started by Sikh hardliners who staged an armed struggle against the Indian Government in the 1980s and 1990s, seeking a separate Sikh homeland to be called ‘Khalistan’.

Although the group was crushed by Punjab police, remnants of the KLF now operate from outside India, supported by foreign elements.
