NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday filed a chargesheet against 13 Pakistani nationals, of which 10 were arrested last year, in a case relating to conspiracy to smuggle weapons and contraband drugs from Pakistan via Gujarat coast to fund terrorist activities in India.
Ten Pakistani nationals – Kadarbaksh Umetan Baloch, Amanullah Musa Baloch, Ismail Sabzal Baloch, Allahbaksh Hatar Baloch, Goharbaksh Dilmurad Baloch, Ammal Phullan Baloch, Gul Mohammad Hatar Baloch, Andam Ali BoherBaloch, Abdulgani Jungiyan Baloch and Abdulhakim Dilmurad Baloch – were arrested in December last year following the seizure of a fishing boat carrying 40 kg of drugs (heroin), six foreign-made pistols, six magazines and 120 9mm live cartridges, along with documents, Pakistani identity cards, mobile phones and Pakistani currency, on Okha coast. The remaining three chargesheeted accused Pakistanis are absconding. The operation to intercept the boat was conducted by Gujarat police’s anti-terrorist squad and coast guard, based on inputs that one Pakistan-based drug mafia man, namely Hazi Salim, was trying to smuggle huge consignments of dru-gs and illegal weapons through Okha shore from Pakistan.
