The decision was taken under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967 for the outfit's alleged involvement in killing of innocent people and police officers and several bombings on civilian targets in India, the order stated.
The Khalistan Liberation Force and all its manifestations have been declared outlawed under the UAPA, the order said.
