The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has expanded its investigation into a major narcotics smuggling case, filing charges against seven additional suspects. The drug haul exceeding 100 kilograms, intercepted in Attari, has led to the unveiling of a significant international drug syndicate.

In its supplementary charge sheet, presented at Patiala House Court, the NIA identified the seven accused—Athar Saeed, Amritpal Singh, Avtar Singh, Harwinder Singh, Tahseem, Deepak Khurana, and Ahmad Farid—as critical operatives within the syndicate.

According to the investigation, these individuals were involved in smuggling narcotics into India and distributing them across the country. They also facilitated the transfer of drug proceeds to key figures abroad. Previously, four individuals were charged in connection with this case. The investigation revealed the drugs, concealed in Licorice roots, were smuggled from Afghanistan on the orders of Dubai-based Shahid Ahmed. The NIA's continuing efforts have led to multiple arrests and a clearer understanding of the syndicate's operations.
