Three killed, 21 injured in grenade attack on Nirankari gathering

Three persons were killed and 21 injured in a grenade attack on a Nirankari sect congregation at Adliwala village, on the outskirts of Amritsar, on Sunday afternoon. While police said it appeared to be a “terrorist act”, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said the “possibility of involvement of ISI-backed Khalistani/ Kashmiri terror groups could not be ruled out”.

In a statement, Singh said preliminary investigations revealed that two men who had covered their faces — one had a beard — forced their way into the Nirankari Bhavan by waving a pistol. They detained the sewadar, lobbed the grenade into the prayer room, and fled on a motorcycle.
