NIA officials said that teams found that terrorists are using the network of these gangsters for plans like bomb blasts and target killings and disturb law and order in India.

Over 700 henchmen each in Lawrence and Bawana gang

Many types of intelligence agencies keep an eye on terrorist activities across the border or from abroad in the country. On the contrary, the network of gangsters is within the country. According to sources, Lawrence and Neeraj Bawana gang have 700 shooters each. Lawrence’s entire syndicate remains. Many gangsters like Jaggu Bhagwanpuria, Kala Rana, Kala Jathedi are associated with it.

Neeraj Bawana is associated with gangster Davinder Bambiha gang, Kaushal Chaudhary, Tillu Tajpuria, Bhuppi Rana and many gangsters. These are the eyes of the terrorists. It is not a difficult task for them to commit terrorist acts through them. Recently, the name of Lawrence gang henchman Deepak has come up in the attack of terrorist Rinda on the intelligence headquarters of Punjab Police.

Gangsters constantly fight for their supremacy. The biggest enmity is of Lawrence Syndicate and Bambiha Gang. There has been a bloody game of revenge between them. This was weaponised by Harvinder Rinda sitting in Pakistan, Lakhbir Singh Landa sitting in Canada, terrorists sitting in Malaysia and Australia.

They instigates these two gangs for revenge. Then they provide weapons to kill each other by funding them.

If needed, gang members sit in Pakistan and Canada and get shelter in their own country or Arab countries. In return, they also make them smuggle drugs and this is the biggest concern of intelligence agencies.
