National Investigation Agency (NIA) is mulling action against big gangsters like Lawrence Bishnoi, Kapil Sangwan and Neeraj Bawana and their aides. The Home Ministry has asked the NIA to uproot their entire network as they were involved in targeted killings and were acting like terrorists.

Recently the NIA prepared a dossier and took permission from the home ministry to initiate action against these gangs. The gangsters of Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh are on the radar of the NIA.

“They are involved in target killing and are persuading the youths to join their gangs,” a NIA source said quoting the dossier.

Sources said that they want to uproot the entire networks of the NCR based gangsters. There are names of around ten to twelve gangsters in the NIA list against whom action will be taken. In the coming days the central agency can lodge cases under the UAPA against them.

The NIA has declared a Rs 25 lakh reward on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. The probe agency said that whosoever will provide information to it about Dawood shall be rewarded. The NIA has also declared a reward of Rs 20 lakh on Chhota Shakeel and Rs 15 lakh reward on Anis Abrahim, aides of Dawood. “NIA has declared reward of Rs 15 lakh each on Dawood’s other aides Javed Chikna and Tiger Memon, wanted accused in Mumbai serial blasts,” said an official.
