NEW DELHI: The CBI has arrested Enamul Haque, the alleged kingpin of a cattle smuggling racket working on the India-Bangladesh border, officers stated on Friday.
Haque, based mostly in West Bengal, was arrested in Delhi, they stated.
He was booked together with a BSF official for allegedly working the cattle smuggling gang.
On Thursday, the CBI had searched the premises of two chartered accountants in Kolkata in reference to the case, they stated.
The company had booked Satish Kumar, a former commandant of the 36 BSF Battalion now posted in Raipur, alleged kingpin Haque and two others, Anarul SK and Mohammed Golam Mustafa, the officers stated.
