Shimla: A Day after pre-recorded calls by banned Sikh outfit, threatening Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur of not allowing to hoist national flag on Independence Day, police has registered an FIR on Saturday.

Pre-recorded calls had been made to some journalists and the general public in the state, pushing banned outfit US-based pro-Khalistan group’s agenda on Friday.

Many journalists in the state capital, Shimla informed the Police of receiving pre-recorded international calls since Friday morning, threatening that Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur will not be allowed to unfurl the national flag.
