Taking to the news agency ANI, HGS Dhaliwal said Malik made the graffiti on September 27 in Kashmere Gate Police Station limits and a case was registered in the case. He said the miscreant had made such graffiti on two earlier occasions as well and he was also tasked to make graffiti ahead of the World Cup final. The act was being done at the behest of SFJ chief and pro-Khalistan leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.

“Malak Singh alias Malik who is a resident of Kurukshetra was arrested by the Special Cell team the day before, from Kaithal. He had made graffiti on 27th September in Kashmiri Gate Police Station limits. A case was registered regarding the same. They had made the graffiti on two earlier occasions. It was done on the directions of Gurpatwant Singh Pannun on both occasions. They were caught by the Special Cell. So, this time he took more precautions. As per his interrogation, this is the fourth such incident he committed this year. He was also tasked with making graffiti ahead of the World Cup Final but he was nabbed before that by our team,” he told ANI.

The Delhi Police top cop said Malik was given money to make graffiti at a place or choose a day which would highlight their act even more. The miscreant was asked to go to Nepal from where he would be brought to Canada, Dhaliwal said.
