Surrey, March 4 (CINEWS): India’s Enforcement Directorate (ED) – a specialized financial investigation agency under the Federal Finance Ministry’s Department of Revenue – has taken custody of Surrey-based Sukhraj Singh Kang alias Raja to probe more foreign links into the multi-million so-called Bhola drug racket, reports the Tribune newspaper of Chandigarh, India. The newspaper said that Kang was a native of Billi Chaur village in Shahkot (Jalandhar district) who had settled in Surrey. Kang will be produced in court on March 2.
Last year Interpol had issued red notices for at least nine South Asians living in Canada in connection with the case involving notorious drug kingpin Jagdish Singh Bhola, a dismissed police deputy superintendent of police and former international medal-winning wrestler. The synthetic drug racket is pegged at more than one billion dollars.
The ED had sought his custody from a special court in Patiala about 10 days ago in a bid to get information on nine other NRIs absconding in the case and their connection in supplying “ice” (ice is the purest and most potent form of methamphetamine) to Canada, Europe, the US and Australia.
After the Punjab Police had submitted the names of nine NRIs wanted in the case to the CBI last year, red corner notices had been issued against them.
The names on the list are Parminder Singh Deo, Harbans Singh Sidhu, Gursewak Singh Dhillon, Lehmber Singh Daleh, Ranjit Singh Aujla, Sarabjit Singh Sander, Nirankar Singh Dhillon, Amarjit Singh and Pardeep Singh.
