Punjab director general of police (DGP) Suresh Arora said that possibility of Pakistan intelligence agency ISI’s hand behind incidents of sacrilege could not be ruled out.

Talking to mediapersons here on Tuesday, he said after what had happened in Punjab in the past and what was going on in Jammu and Kashmir, the possibility of ISI trying to disturb peace in the state could not be discounted. “It could be a game plan of the ISI,” he remarked.

“We are investigating the recent incident and hopefully will find out the culprits,” he added.

The DGP said RSS leader Jagdish Gagneja’s murder case might have been shifted to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) but Punjab police will continue with its probe. “We had made a good progress in the case and we have shared the inputs with the CBI,” he said.
