Srinagar: The NIA on Wednesday filed a third supplementary charge-sheet in a special court in Mohali against two narcotics traffickers, including a Pakistani national, for their alleged involvement in a “narco-terror case of Hizbul Mujahideen terror group”, an official said.

Charges have been slapped on Gurjant Singh, alias Sunny alias Ashish Gattu of Amritsar, Punjab, and Nasir alias Nasir Khan alias Pathan, a resident of Pakistan before NIA Special Court, Mohali, Punjab under Sections 120-B of IPC, Sections 8 r/w 21, 23, 24, 27-A & 29 of NDPS Act and Sections 17, 18, 20 of UA (P) Act, the investigation agency said in a statement.

The case (RC 23/2020/NIA /DLI) was registered in April last year in Amritsar after the arrest of Allah Ahmed Shergojri, seizure of a truck and recovery of Rs 29 lakh from his possession.

“He was an overground worker and a close associate of Riyaz Ahmad Naikoo, the then commander of Hizbul Mujahideen in Kashmir,” the NIA statement said.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) took over the investigation in May last year.

Earlier, a charge-sheet against 12 accused was filed by the NIA in this case.

“Gurjant Singh, a narcotics trafficker, was in close contact with other co-conspirators for the supply of heroin and channelising the proceeds of the sale of narcotics,” the statement said.

“Nasir, a Pakistan-based trafficker, was involved in the smuggling of heroin into India in the garb of export of rock salt granules through Attari border,” the NIA statement said, adding that further investigation in the case continues.
