The NIA has charged all the five accused with murder, conspiracy and under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Arms Act.

In October this year, the NIA court had supplied a copy of the charge-sheet in RSS leader Ravinder Gosain murder case after framing charges against the five accused, who were all accused in Gagneja murder case.

According to the charge-sheet, Gagneja’s murder was part of a trans-national conspiracy hatched by senior KLF leadership under targeted killings. He was shot dead by two motorcycle-borne assailants in the Red Cross Market area in Jalandhar, Punjab. He was immediately shifted next day to DMC Hospital in Ludhiana but died on September 22 due to critical injuries.
