The Supreme Court lawyers on January 17, 2022, received a threat call from pro-Khalistan outfit Sikhs for Justice (SFJ). In the call received by some SC lawyers, the SFJ chief Gurpatwant Singh Pannun threatened the lawyers for filing a complaint against Pannu for announcing a 1 million dollars reward to block Prime Minister Narendra Modi and raise the Khalistan flag instead of the tricolor in Delhi on the Republic Day. Pannun warned of protests against apex court lawyers whenever they go abroad and he maintained that SFJ will not allow retired SC judge Indu Malhotra to proceed with the inquiry into the PM's security breach. In the call, Pannun was heard saying, "You have filed a complaint against SFJ and put yourself in a dangerous position. Now we will hold anti-Sikh, anti-Muslim advocates accountable. While we will block Modi on January 26 and raise Khalistan flags, we will not allow Indu Malhotra to investigate Modi terror plot. We are preparing a list of advocates who visit foreign nations and you will hear from us peacefully, democratically, and loudly."
