NIA Raids Punjab Associates of Terrorist Goldy Brar in Extortion Case

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids at nine locations in Punjab on Thursday, targeting associates of designated terrorist Goldy Brar in connection with an extortion and firing case. The raids come a day after Brar was charge-sheeted in the murder of a Karni Sena chief.

The NIA said in a statement that the raids were conducted at the premises of individuals associated with foreign-based designated individual terrorist Goldy Brar and his aides. The agency has released telephone numbers for the public to share information about the terrorist and his associates or to report any threat calls received from the gang. The NIA assured that the identity of informers would be kept confidential.

The raids were part of the NIA’s investigation into a case involving extortion and the firing of gunshots at a residence in Chandigarh. The case was initially registered by local police on January 20, 2024, and the NIA took over the investigation on March 18.

The NIA stated that its investigations have revealed that Goldy Brar, along with an individual known as Goldy of Rajpura in Punjab, conspired to extort money from businesses in Punjab, Chandigarh, and neighboring areas. The NIA alleges that the individuals involved also provided arms and ammunition to members of terrorist gangs formed by Brar and were engaged in drug smuggling and the laundering of proceeds from those sales.

The NIA emphasized its commitment to cracking down on individual terrorists involved in criminal-terrorist activities in India. During the raids, incriminating materials, including digital devices, were seized.
