New Delhi, Sep 23 (PTI) The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday filed a supplementary charge sheet against an accused in a case related to the conspiracy by Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) terrorists to kill a Hindu priest in Jalandhar in Punjab last year.

Gagandeep Singh alias “Gaggu”, a resident of Sangat Pura Mohalla in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut, is the fifth person charge-sheeted by the NIA in a special court in Punjab after taking over the investigation of the case on October 8 last year.

The agency had filed charge sheet against four accused -- Canada-based chief of KTF Hardeep Singh Nijjar, his close associate Arshdeep Singh alias "Prabh", Kamaljeet Sharma and Ram Singh alias "Sona" -- on July 4.
