CM asks Centre to pursue 10 NRIs’ extradition from Canada

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has written to the Union Government, urging it to take up the issue of extradition of 10 NRI proclaimed offenders in various drugs cases with the authorities in Canada.

In separate letters to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, the Chief Minister said the Congress government had scaled up its efforts for their extradition from Canada, as part of its war on drugs, but was obstructed as these cases were pending at various levels.

A spokesperson said the government had decided to aggressively pursue the extradition of these suspects as their custodial interrogation was vital to establish the entire chain of the drugs network in Punjab and to expose those allegedly patronising the trade. They are: Sarabjit Singh Sandhar, Ranjit Singh Aujla, Nirankar Singh Dhillon, Gursewak Singh Dhillon, Amarjit Singh Kooner, Pradeep Singh Dhaliwal.
