Davinder Bambiha, Goldy Brar, Lawrence Bishnoi gang links with Sukha
Sukha belonged to Moga district in Punjab and fled from India in 2017 by using forged documents. He was linked to the Davinder Bambiha gang, which is active in Moga and the areas around it.
As per Indian media reports, there were seven cases registered against him. As per NIA, Singh was considered very close to Canada-based gangster Arshdeep Dalla, a rival of Goldy Brar and Lawrence Bishnoi.
The development came in the backdrop of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar was gunned down in Surrey, which led to strained ties between India and Canada after the Justin Trudeau government accused the Indian government of being involved in the killing.
India has rejected all of Canada's allegations, calling them "absurd and motivated".
