Amritsar cops look into hawala deals

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, July 13

In the Attari drug haul case, the police are investigating the hawala transactions made by Handwara-based trader Tariq Ahmad Lone and his accomplices. After the expiry of the three-day police remand of the accused, a local court today extended it for two more days.

The police have arrested Ajay Gupta, a local trader and clearing agent, Parminder Babbar, brother of main accused Gurpinder Singh, Parvinder Singh of Batala, Luv Sharma of Amritsar and Deepak Kansal Bobby of Kadian, Gurdaspur, in connection with the seizure of 532 kg of heroin from a rock salt consignment at the Attari ICP on July 1.

“It also came to light that Parvinder Singh of Batala, who runs a small grocery shop there, had deposited around Rs 10 lakh into the account of Lone in Jammu and Kashmir Bank. We suspect that the amount came through Hawala transactions and therefore we are also looking into this theory of Hawala transactions,” said a cop, adding that they were scrutinising the bank details of Lone.

Assets identified

The Customs has identified properties of the accused. They claimed that investigations revealed that the income tax returns filed by family members of the accused were disproportionate to the assets that they amassed with the alleged ill-gotten money.
