Pro-Khalistan Slogans Discovered at Delhi Metro Stations Ahead of G20 Summit

In the lead-up to the G20 Summit, scheduled to take place in Delhi from September 9 to 10, the walls of several Delhi Metro stations have been found defaced with Pro-Khalistan slogans, according to the police. The event is set to be attended by more than 30 heads of state, high-ranking officials from the European Union, invited guest nations, and representatives from 14 international organizations.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has acknowledged the situation as a matter of law and order, expressing willingness to collaborate with the Delhi Police in resolving the issue. Law enforcement officials have registered a case and launched an investigation, with CCTV footage being examined to identify potential leads related to the incident.

“Sikhs For Justice (SFJ)” has also released raw footage depicting the defaced Delhi Metro stations, the police reported. The suspected activists affiliated with SFJ have targeted multiple Metro stations across Delhi, stretching from Shivaji Park to Punjabi Bagh, using pro-Khalistan slogans as their means of expression.

In preparation for the G20 Summit, the Delhi Police are actively monitoring social media channels to counteract the dissemination of rumors and provocative content. The aim is to identify elements that could pose security risks and to bolster security measures at malls, markets, and religious sites within the city.

To ensure a secure environment, all entry points into the national capital will be tightly sealed to prevent unauthorized access. However, regular vehicular and public movement will continue to be permitted, as confirmed by the Delhi Police.

For medical contingencies during the summit, a total of 80 teams of medical professionals and 130 ambulances will be on standby. In a recent review meeting, Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor, VK Saxena, was briefed on the specific responsibilities assigned to 60 deputy commissioners of police (DCPs) in relation to the summit’s organization and security.
