Lawrence Bishnoi Remained Anonymous To Gang Based In Canada
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has mentioned in its charge sheet against Lawrence Bishnoi that the gangster didn’t directly talk to any shooter but routed them through his close associates, including Satinderjit Singh alias Goldy Brar and his brothers, Sachin Thapan Bishnoi, and Anmol Bishnoi.
Accused Satinderjit Singh alias Goldy Brar made the operational base for the Lawrence Bishnoi syndicate in Canada. Bishnoi’s brother Anmol Bishnoi, Sachin Bishnoi and Vikramjit Singh operate from abroad.
The charge sheet also mentioned that the entire network was run on anonymity, and nobody knew who the actual boss was.
“The gang operated on anonymity. A person in the gang knew only the person who was above him in the hierarchy and all the gang members involved in an operation did not have every information about the rest of the members.
“The gang members present at the time of killing also often did not know each other so that even if one got caught, the rest of the gang members remained safe,” the charge sheet read.
The NIA also said that its investigation has revealed that the distribution of work used to be done with careful planning, and the gang members were assigned different tasks. The matters pertaining to funding were mostly decided by Lawrence Bishnoi, Goldy Brar, Jaggu Bhagwanpuria and Darmanjot Kahlon.
“Bishnoi was intentionally running the entire operations from behind the jail. He was so adept in operating from inside the jail that he didn’t apply for bail in any case. It is also revealed that a considerable part of money generated through extortion activities was sent to Canada, the US, Dubai, Thailand, and Australia for the use of their associates/family members based abroad and for funding the activities of pro-Khalistan extremists,” the charge sheet read.
The NIA has further mentioned that kidnapping, murder, extortion for ransom, cross-border smuggling of sophisticated weapons and narcotics, in-land smuggling of contraband, illegal liquor smuggling, were the main activities of this terror syndicate.
