14 Delhi Police Members Receive Special Medal For Operations Against ISIS, Others


New Delhi, November 1 (IANS): No less than 14 Delhi police officers have been awarded the “Union Minister of Interior’s Special Operation Medal” for extraordinary service in operations against a module of the Islamic State, the pro-Khalistan radicals and narco-terrorism.

The awards that were announced on “National Unity Day” by the Interior Ministry were awarded to the security forces for carrying out special operations against terrorism, border actions and for controlling armaments, drug smuggling prevention and rescue operations. Six officers from the Delhi Police Special Cell – Inspector Sanjay Gupta, Inspector Rajesh Kumar, ASI Ashok Kumar, HC Gaurav, Constables Asif and Saurabh – received the special award for demonstrating indomitable courage during an operation in South Delhi.

On March 8, 2020, the special cell dismantled a module in ISIS’s Khorasan province with a pan-Indian network. They apprehended a Jahanzaib Sami couple and his wife Hina Basir Beig of Jamia Nagar, Okhla Vihar in Delhi, and recovered incriminating items, including electronic devices. Based on their interrogation, another associate, Abdulla Basith, a hardline ISKP member, was arrested at Tihar prison. Abdulla Basith was held in Tihar prison in various terrorist cases and operated from there.

While extracting the data from the seized electronic devices, it was found that this module was preparing explosions and terrorist operations in India, according to an official statement.

Due to the pan-Indian ramifications of the case, further investigation was transferred to the National Investigation Agency.

Eight officers of the special cell – Inspector Vinay Pal, SI Sukhbir Singh, SI Vikram Singh, SI Raghubir Singh, SI Sandesh, SI Akash Tomar, ASI Anshu and HC Sudhir Latwal also received the special award. The special cell had revealed the link between ISI-Pakistan, pro-Khalistan radicals and narco-terrorism and had avoided a series of targeted assassinations in Delhi by apprehending in due time Gurjit Singh alias Bhaa, Sukhdeep Singh alias Bhura ( snipers) and most wanted gangster Sukhmeet Pal Singh aka Sukh Bhikhariwal.

These snipers also killed Shaurya Chakra beneficiary Balwinder Singh Sandhu on the instructions of Sukh Bhikhariwal, who was working at the request of the ISI. The ISI, through its K2 office – Kashmir-Khalistan – had financed the targeted assassinations of right-wing leaders and opponents of terrorism with money earned from drug trafficking. They smuggled narcotics to Kashmir-based Hizbul Mujahideen cadres and supplied them to their Khalistani counterparts in Punjab for distribution.

The two snipers were caught after a brief exchange of gunfire with three people from Kashmir, Shabir Ahmad Gojree, Md. Ayub Pathan and Riyaz Rather. Two kilograms of quality heroin, three sophisticated weapons and cash were recovered in their possession.
