Narco-trafficking: NIA filed supplementary charge-sheet against 3 persons

On Thursday filed a supplementary charge sheet against three persons by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for their affirmed association in selling smuggled heroin and sending the proceeds through hawala to further the activities of banned terrorist organisation Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF), an official said.

The supplementary charge-sheet was filed against Rajender Singh, 29, of Amritsar, Parminder Pal Singh, 47, and Jasmeet Singh Hakimzada, 41, both from New Delhi but now living in Dubai, under sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), the NIA official said.

A similar case relating to the capture of 500 grams of heroin and drug profits about ? 1,20,000 in May last year from one Jajbir Singh Samra and two others.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) re-registered the case and filed a charge sheet against 10 accused under various sections of the IPC, the NDPS Act and the UAPA.

Rajender was trained for selling the smuggled heroin in India, while Parminder played the role of channelling the proceeds through hawala from India to Dubai, the NIA official said.

Jasmeet, a Dubai-based international drugs smuggler and money launderer, in turn, transferred the funds to things based in Pakistan to further the activities of banned terrorist organisation KLF, the official said.

Jasmeet and Harmeet Singh, Pakistan-based self-styled KLF chief, have been trained in running a narco-terror network to strengthen the terrorist activities of the KLF, the NIA official said.

A network of narco-traffickers, terrorists and hawala operatives based in Punjab, Delhi and Dubai was operating at the behest of Harmeet and Jasmeet and indulging in subversive activities against India, the official said.

The further investigation against the missing accused continues.
