A module of the Babbar Khalsa was busted and seven members of the Sikh terrorist group arrested in Ludhiana, Punjab Police said on Saturday.
Three pistols and some ammunition was seized from the arrested men, Ludhiana Police Commissioner R.N. Dhoke told the media in Ludhiana.
He said the group planned to target those opposed to or writing against Khalistani ideology and radical Sikh organisations.
Dhoke said those arrested were allegedly linked to and were funded by Surinder Singh Babbar, who is said to be based in London in the United Kingdom.
The officer claimed Babbar was providing money and weapons to the group members.
