Terrorist-gangster nexus case: NIA arrests major logistics service provider
The official said the suspect was identified as Chhotu Ram Bhaat, a resident of Haryana’s Sirsa. He was arrested on Monday night.
Bhaat was the main logistics provider for gangsters. He acted as a weapons supplier and also provided shelters to the gangsters of the Bambiha group before and after the crimes.
On December 21, 2022, the NIA conducted searches at two sites in Sirsa (including Chhotu Bhaat’s house in Chautala village) to dismantle the emerging link between terrorists, gangsters and arms suppliers in India and abroad.
“Some of the most desperate gang leaders and their associates in India and abroad, who are spearheading and carrying out such terror and criminal activities, were identified and booked in two cases registered by the NIA in August 2022,” the official said. .
This is part of the NIA crackdown on top gangsters and their arms suppliers in Haryana and Punjab in general, he added.
The official said the arrest was aimed at dismantling the illegal weapons support infrastructure apart from the hideouts of the Bambiha-led terror-criminal syndicate.
“They took advantage of their hideout’s border location with Punjab. Further investigations will continue to dismantle such terror networks, as well as their funding and support infrastructure,” the official said.
The NIA investigation aims to identify “critical elements of the terror-criminal syndicate’s support infrastructure and then take decisive action against those involved”.
