Arms smuggling accused booked under UAPA in Faridkot

Share This

Faridkot, August 26

Six years after they allegedly procured prohibited and foreign-made weapons, many influential and politically well-connected persons of Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi have been booked under the stringent provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) here. The Act deals with unlawful and terror activities.

While the Organised Crime Control Unit (OCCU) of the Punjab Police has already nominated more than 12 persons (two of them have been arrested), the OCCU is investigating some politically connected persons who are under the lens for 'procuring' the smuggled weapons.

Pankaj Bansal of Moga is one of the arrested persons in the case. Owner of a car agency, Pankaj is already in the dock for his alleged involvement in the fabrication of bullet marks on a police Gypsy in the Behbal Kalan police firing case of October 2015. — TNS
