NIA teams up with Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh police to check organised criminal gangs

Chandigarh: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has initiated coordinated efforts with police forces of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh to dismantle the nexus between organised criminal gangs in the northern region and terror groups operating abroad.

Chairing a meeting of heads of the three police forces on Friday, NIA Director General (DG) Dinkar Gupta underscored the need for collaborative action to combat organised crime.

Enhanced cooperation and information sharing among NIA, Punjab, Chandigarh and Haryana police will effectively address the growing threat posed by these criminal syndicates, particularly in the northern region, Gupta said.

These decisions were taken at a high-level interstate coordination meeting held in Panchkula, Haryana, under the chairmanship of NIA Director General Dinkar Gupta.

During the meeting, discussions were held on activities of leaders and members of organised criminal syndicates and groups operating in the northern states and the ongoing investigations in the various criminal cases connected to them, according to the statement.
