The investigation has revealed a well-knitted conspiracy by Pakistani agents of LeT to destabilize the Government in the State of Punjab and the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. According to police, Mohammad Rafiq Khan on the instructions of his Pakistani handler, Abdul Hameed Khan had deposited Rs.10,000/- in the account of one Darshan Singh of Sangrur Punjab.

The account number of Darshan Singh was provided to Mohammad Rafiq Khan by Gurpal Singh. This Gurpal Singh has a criminal background and had developed a friendly relationship with one Sajid Bukhari, who is a Pakistani national lodged in Sangrur Jail along with Gurpal Singh. Since Gurpal Singh was in need of money, so after his release and deportation, Sajid Bukhari cultivated Gurpal Singh and introduced Gurpal Singh to Abdul Hameed Khan and other Pakistani handlers.

"Since, Mohd. Rafiq Khan was desirous to join terrorist ranks in Pakistan he even attempted to cross over by legitimate means through Wagha Border but he was stopped by Indian Immigration Authorities", police said.

Substantial digital evidence has emerged during the investigation wherein Gurpal Singh and various other Pak handlers have been sharing anti-Indian and pro Khalistani content.
