That is, it can be operated by a single person. It was recently employed in Afghanistan during the Taliban fight.
Number of incidents in recent times
There has been a significant surge in anti-national activities in Punjab region for the last few months.
1. The announcement of celebration of Khalistan Foundation Day by Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannu.
2. Clashe between Shiv Sena and Sikh community in Patiala on April 30. Pro Khalistan slogans are raised.
3. IED is found in Karnal and four terrorists of Babbar Khalsa were booked.
4. 4 kg RDX found in Tarn Taran and two suspects were arrested.
5. Khalistani flags were put up at the gate of Himachal Vidhan Sabha.
Questions are being posed that the terrorist groups are planning some thing big and this attack is an attempt to register presence? Khalistani organization Sikh for Justice (SFJ) has taken the responsibility for the Mohali blast.
RPG attacks were common during Afaghanistan-Taliban war. In India and precisely in Punjab RPGs were used during the insurgency period which lasted unto 1990. During emergency (1975-77) and after 1984 some Khalistan elements used RPGs. There are lots of evidences are present it public domain which tells us that how RPGs were used to blast the cars, homes and police stations by terrorists.
Here in Mohali attack there is big question to answer where this grenade come from. Is it come form Afghanistan-Pakistan route?
However, some experts are doubtful of a new equation. The help from Pakistan to Khalistanis is evident, now after the Taliban took over Afghanistan, a new formation of Pakistan, Khalistan and Taliban can be created.
