Lawrence Bishnoi gang members among 6 arrested by NIA during nationwide gangster-terrorist nexus raids

New Delhi [India], February 23

The National Investigating Agency (NIA) has arrested six people including associates of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang in nationwide raids.
These arrests come after the recent raids by NIA at 76 locations across eight states to bust known terrorist-gangster-drug smuggler nexus. The six people arrested by the NIA include – Lucky Khokhar @Denis, who is a close associate of Canada-based ‘designated terrorist’, Arshdeep Singh @ArshDalla.
Others arrested in the raids, which were carried out in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, NCR, Maharashtra, and Madhya Pradesh, include associates of gangsters Lawrance Bishnoi, Jaggu Bhagwanpuria and Goldy Brar.
Khokhar, a resident of Bhatinda, Punjab, who was nabbed from Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, on Tuesday, was in direct and frequent contact with Arsh Dala in Canada and had carried out recruitment for him and received funds from him for carrying out terror-related activities. He had provided arms and ammunition to Arsh Dala’s associates in Punjab on his directions, which were also used for carrying out the recent killing in Jagraon, Punjab on directions of Arsh Dala.
NIA had registered a suo-moto case on August 20 last year against seven people, including Harwinder Singh @Rinda, Lakhbir Singh Sandhu @Landa, and Arshdeep Singh @ArshDala. One person, Deepak Ranga, was earlier arrested in the case by NIA.
According to an NIA spokesperson, Khokhar was working for Dala, who has been involved in smuggling arms, ammunition, explosives, IEDs etc. across international and inter-state borders in India for several Khalistani terror outfits, including the Khalistan Liberation Force, Babbar Khalsa International and International Sikh Youth Federation.
Besides Khokhar, the NIA also arrested Lakhvir Singh, a resident of Gidderbaha, Muktsar, Punjab, Harpreet, a resident of Nihal Singh Wala, Moga, Punjab, Dalip Bishnoi, a resident of Bishanpura Abohar, Dist-Fazilka, Punjab, Surinder @ChikuChaudhary, a resident of Vill-Narnaul, Dist- Mahendragarh, Haryana and Hari Om @Titu, a resident of Gurugram, Haryana.
While Hari Om @Titu was arrested on Tuesday, Lakhvir Singh was nabbed a day later on Wednesday in connection with a case registered against them and their associates in August last year for allegedly attempting to motivate and recruit youth for terror activities by using social media. They were also using social media to ‘publicize’ their crimes in a bid to create fear among the general public.
