A total of nine locations associated with foreign-based designated individual terrorist Goldy Brar  and his aides were searched by NIA teams in a Chandigarh related extortion and firing case.

The NIA has also released telephone numbers for the public to share information about the terrorist and his associates or to reveal any threat calls they may have received from the gang. The information can be shared on landline number 0172-2682901 or mobile number 7743002947 (For Telegram/ WhatsApp). The identity of the informer will be kept a secret.

The crackdown today was part of NIA’s investigations into case RC-03/2024/NIA/DLI, pertaining to demand for extortion money and firing of gunshots at the residence of one victim in Chandigarh. The case was originally registered by the local police on 20th January 2024 and the NIA took over the probe on 18th March.

Today’s searches covered the districts of Mohali, Patiala, Hoshiarpur and Fatehgarh Sahib, as part of NIA’s sustained crackdown on individual terrorists engaged in criminal-terrorist activities in India. Incriminating material including digital devices have been seized.

Investigations so far have revealed that Goldy Brar, along with one Goldy of Rajpura (Punjab), had hatched a criminal conspiracy to generate funds by demanding extortion money from businessmen of Punjab, Chandigarh and surrounding areas. They were also providing arms and ammunition to members of terrorist gangs formed by Brar. They were additionally involved in smuggling and sale of narcotics and channelisation of the proceeds from these sales.

As per NIA investigations, Goldy Brar and his associates based abroad were continuously recruiting vulnerable youth into their gangs, using them for identification of extortion targets, firing in front of houses of those targets who refuse to pay the extortion money, and inducing them in sale and purchase of narcotics, weapon smuggling etc.

NIA is continuing with its investigations to dismantle the terrorist-gangster nexus operating in the country.
