NEW DELHI: Cracking down on the nexus among terrorists, gangsters and drug dealers based in India and abroad, that came to the fore during recent probes into targeted killings in Punjab, the NIA on Monday conducted searches at 50 locations across Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi NCR. The searched locations include premises of some key accused in Sidhu Moosewala murder case— incarcerated kingpin Lawrence Bishnoi, his Canada-based aide Goldy Brar and Jaggu Bhagwanpuria.
NIA had on August 26 re-registered two cases, booked earlier by Delhi Police, in connection with the terror and criminal activities being carried out by gang leaders and their associates based in India and foreign countries including Pakistan, Canada, Malaysia and Australia etc. Preliminary investigations, like the NIA probe into the October 2020 killing of Shaurya Chakra awardee Balwinder Singh in Punjab, pointed to most of these conspiracies being hatched from inside jails and their execution by an organised network of operatives based in India and abroad.
The motive of the gangs, NIA claimed, was to terrorise the general public and extort money for running and promoting their criminal syndicates. These gangs were also raising funds to carry out such criminal activities through smuggling of drugs and weapons.
A few of the gang leaders and their associates have been identified and booked.
Incarcerated kingpins like Lawrence Bishnoi have allegedly been running their extortion racket and ordering hit jobs though close aides based in India and abroad, which are then executed by local members of the organised syndicate.
“The recent sensational crimes and extortion calls by criminal syndicates and gangsters to businessmen, professionals including doctors etc., had created a widespread scare among the people. These gangs were using cyber-space to publicise these crimes, to create terror among the public at large. The NIA investigations also revealed that such criminal acts were not isolated (and) local incidents but that there was a deep rooted conspiracy amongst terrorists, gangsters and drug smuggling cartels and networks, who were operating from both within and outside the country,” NIA said on Monday.
NIA said that many gang leaders and members have fled India and were operating from foreign countries, including Pakistan, Canada, Malaysia, Australia etc. An NIA spokesperson said six pistols, one revolver and one shotgun, ammunition, drugs, cash, incriminating documents, digital devices, details of benami property and threat letters, etc were seized in the raids that started Monday morning.
