NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has filed a charge-sheet against five Khalistani terrorists in a case related to smuggling of arms, ammunitions, and explosives from across the India-Pakistan border via drones.

The five accused are Harmesh Singh and Darvesh Singh of Ferozepur district, Gurmukh Singh of Jalandhar, Gagandeep Singh of Kapurthala, and Lakhbir Singh Rode of Moga district of Punjab.

The case was initially registered at Mamdot police station in Ferozepur district in August last year. In November, 2021, the NIA again registered a case under relevant provisions of the Arms Act, the NDPS Act, the Explosive Substance Act, and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

“Investigation has revealed that the charge-sheeted accused persons had smuggled illegal consignments of arms, ammunitions, explosives and narcotics from across the Indo-Pak border to carry out terror activities in India,” the agency said in a release.


The agency stated that the consignments were sent by Lakhbir Singh Rode, chief of proscribed outfit International Sikh Youth Federation (ISYF), and his associates from Pakistan via drones. Rode is currently absconding.

“These consignments were received by co-accused and further discreetly passed on to other accused involved in the conspiracy to carry out subversive activities in India.” the NIA further said.

“Incriminating evidences have been found against all the charge-sheeted the accused persons”, it concluded.
