Malaysia deports Sikh terror suspects to India
Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia has deported an Indian national for allegedly being part of an international Sikh militant group.
Satpal Singh, 41, was arrested in Cheras for immigration offences on January 4 and sent back to India on Thursday.
Special Task Force (Operations and Counter Terrorism) director Comm Datuk Mohamad Fuzi Harun said that they believe Singh is part of a Sikh militant group called Babbar Khalsa International (BKI).
According to the Star, in a statement, he said Singh had been supplying the group with fake travel documents and using Malaysia as a transit point for the group`s activities.
He added that Singh had forged documents for several BKI members who were involved in a series of bombings in India in 2006.
Police apparently tracked down Singh, who has been in the country since 2006, following the arrest of four BKI members.
Satpal and the four, who have also been deported, are awaiting trial in India.
