New Delhi, December 5

One of India's most wanted men and Khalistani terrorist Lakhbir Singh Rode died of a heart attack in Pakistan. 

Rode was the nephew of Khalistani separatist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. He had fled to Pakistan after Bhindranwale's death and settled down in Lahore. A native of village Rode in Moga, Lakhbir Singh had initially fled to Dubai. He later moved to Pakistan but kept his family in Canada. I

Lakhbir Singh was listed as an ‘individual terrorist’ under the UA(P)A . In 2002, India had submitted a list of 20 terrorists demanding their extradition from Pakistan.

Lakhbir Singh’s brother and former Akal Takht Jathedar Jasbir Singh Rode confirmed his death. 

The NIA is investigating six cases against Lakhbir Singh for his alleged ‘active involvement’ in terror-related activities between 2021-2023.

The NIA confiscated a piece of land belonging to Lakhbir Singh at village Kothe Gurupura village in Moga. A notice put up by the NIA said that one-fourth share in the land measuring 43 kanal 3 marlas belonged to Lakhbir Singh.

The NIA probe in connection with 2021 tiffin bomb blast in Punjab had revealed that Lakhbir Singh had masterminded the whole conspiracy in collusion with his Pakistan-based ‘masters’. He had also played a key role in sending consignments of arms, ammunition, custom-made tiffin bombs, grenades, explosives as well as drugs, to carry out terrorist acts, particularly bomb blasts, to instil fear and terror among the people of Punjab, the NIA had earlier said

His criminal dossier includes armed attacks on law enforcement personnel, orchestrating IED and bomb blasts, targeted killings of members of the minority community, extortion, fundraising for terrorist operations, and instilling terror among the general populace, said officials.
