Gangster-terrorist connection case: In an ongoing crackdown on the gangster-terrorist nexus, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday conducted raids in Haryana and recovered large quantities of illegal arms and ammunition.

According to reports, the agency conducted searches at two locations in Sirsa to dismantle and break the emerging nexus between terrorists, gangsters and arms suppliers based in India and abroad.

Some of the most desperate gang leaders based in India and abroad and their associates, who are masterminding these terror and criminal activities, were identified and booked by the NIA in two cases registered in August this year.

This was the fourth search conducted by the NIA

The latest (4th) round of searches is part of the NIA’s crackdown on top gangsters based in Haryana and Punjab and their arms suppliers.

The joint raids, along with the Haryana Police, were conducted on the night of December 20-21 at Chhotu Bhaat of Chautala village in Sirsa and Jagga Sarpanch Takhatmal village of Sirsa.

NIA recovers arms and ammunition during raids

During the searches, 4 illegal weapons, 1 rifle, 1 pistol and 2 pistols, over a hundred rounds of ammunition of different calibers, some empty and fired cartridges and sharp edged weapons were seized.

Notably, the current search was aimed at dismantling the illegal arms support infrastructure, apart from the fugitive hideouts of the terrorist criminal syndicate led by Bambiha. According to reports, they were taking advantage of the hideout’s border location in Punjab. Furthermore, the NIA stated that investigations will continue to dismantle these terrorist networks and their financing and support infrastructure.

Meanwhile, the NIA’s investigations also revealed that such criminal acts were not isolated local incidents, but a deep-rooted conspiracy among terrorists, gangsters and drug-trafficking cartels, arms suppliers, hideouts and networks, operating both inside and outside the country. . .
