New Delhi, Sep 21 : The security agencies have identified a group of 11 individuals, believed to be both gangsters and terrorists, currently residing in Canada, the US, and Pakistan.

The security agencies including NIA and Delhi Police’s Special Cell claims of the gangsters hiding were proved after intelligence inputs from Canada indicated that Sukhdool Singh a.k.a.Sukha Duneke of Davinder Bambiha gang from Moga district has been killed in inter-gang rivalry on Wednesday night.
Unconfirmed reports suggest he was killed in Winnipeg, Canada but the security agencies have several times indicated that Sukha Duneke was hiding in Canada and a dossier was also submitted by them to Canadian authorities.
