Accused in arms case to be extradited

Faridkot, August 22

The Organised Crime Control Unit (OCCU) of the state police has started the extradition process of gangster Ranjit Singh, alias Dupla, in the five-year-old foreign-made fire weapons smuggling case of Faridkot.

Ranjit is facing more than 15 criminal cases for kidnapping, attempt to murder, robbery, snatching and contract killings. The district police had arrested the gangster in the foreign-made weapon smuggling case in February 2015, and had seized many imported weapons from him. He was declared a proclaimed offender after he didn’t appear in the court here in December 2017. Senior officials in the OCCU suspect that he was presently in the US. The investigation by the OCCU, which started this month, revealed that Dupla and his associates had sold the smuggled weapons to rich and influential people in Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi. — TNS
