Haryana starts UP-style action against assets of gangsters, druglords | Chandigarh News

CHANDIGARH: Taking a cue from how Uttar Pradesh deals with accused and convicted drug peddlers, Haryana Police have not only attached and sealed their properties worth Rs 13 crore but also started listing their remaining moveable and immovable assets.
The action against ill-gotten wealth has struck at the heart of gangster business in the state. The Haryana Police special task force (STF), National Investigation Agency (NIA), and crime branch teams from respective districts banded for the first 40 raids.
Confirming that the crackdown will continue, Haryana director general of police P K Agrawal said: “You need to attack the criminal from all sides. Seize their assets and they can’t build a gang for expansion.”
The proceeds of illicit business are being tracked and accounts being blocked to leave the narco-terrorism business broke. On Monday, the joint raids came to Bhiwani, Sonipat, Jhajjar, Gurgaon and Yamunanagar districts, while the next strikes are against theft and forgery that fund drug traders.
In a crime review last week, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, home minister Anil Vij, and home secretary T V S N Prasad analysed how the gangs linked with terrorist outfits had flourished.
This meeting was called after some arrests related to the murder of Punjabi singer Subhdeep Singh Sidhu Moose Wala and the capturing of arms, explosives, and ammunation from a terror module busted in Karnal. Ever since the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) released its report after the assembly’s monsoon session, Haryana’s BJP-JJP government is in the firing line of the opposition.
