Suspect identified in Edmonton South Asian extortion ring

CBC is reporitng that "Edmonton police say three drive-by shootings in three municipalities last December are connected to a rash of extortion incidents. On Tuesday, the Edmonton Police Service provided an update on Project Gaslight — a probe into incidents targeting South Asian home builders in Edmonton, alleged to have been carried out by a group of local suspects who are being directed by someone in India."

"Stewart told reporters that shootings in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Alta., and Winnipeg were allegedly perpetrated by 19-year-old Arjun Sahnan, who police have previously identified as connected to the ongoing investigation." So here we have a 19 year old South Asian kid hired to extort South Asian businesses in Canada by someone in India. Weird.
