Gang associate Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun (above 2007), was arrested in Abbotsford in connection to a September drive-by shooting on Bradner Road outside of Brian "Shrek" Dhaliwal's family home in Abbotsford, was critically wounded in a targeted shooting in Surrey on Tuesday.

Jujhur Khun-Khun has been a wanted man on two fronts for years.

Police have nabbed the 25-year-old Surrey man on a number of charges that culminated in a first-degree murder charge announced Monday in connection with the shooting death of Jonathan Bacon.

Rivals have twice attempted to kill Khun-Khun, and his fiancé died under mysterious circumstances.

On Sept. 16, 2011, Khun-Khun and Sukh Dhak, the highest-ranking members of the Dhak-Duhre group, were shot at in Surrey in the 10100-block 144th Avenue as they left a birthday party.

Khun-Khun was shot 10 times — once through the heart — and survived, thanks to a combat-trained surgeon who had just returned from Afghanistan. Dhak escaped on foot uninjured.

On Jan. 15, 2013, Khun-Khun once again survived as he and Dhak associate Manjinder Hairan were shot in Surrey in the 12600-block 112B Avenue

Khun-Khun was shot several times but escaped death a second time. He managed to drive himself to hospital. Hairan died at the scene.

Police have been busy with Khun-Khun as well.

In October 2007 he was handed a 18-month suspended sentence on three counts of fraud and possession/use of a stolen credit card.

An intriguing mystery also occurred in October 2007, when his fiancé, Sukhvir Kaur Grewal, 19, allegedly fell to her death from a truck Khun-Khun was driving.

Khun-Khun is recovering from his latest brush with death January 15, and now faces a first-degree murder charge.





Three men with gang ties have been charged with first-degree murder for the August 2011 shooting death of Jonathon Bacon.

Bacon, a Red Scorpion gang member, was gunned down in a Porsche SUV outside of the Delta Okanagan resort alongside three other passengers.

Two of Bacon’s associates, Hells Angel Larry Amero and Independent Soldier James Riach, were wounded in the shootout, as was Leah Hadden-Watts, then 21, who was shot in the neck and left paralyzed.

Jonathon Bacon was shot to death outside of the Delta Grand Hotel in Kelowna, B.C., in August 2011.

Police say Bacon, Amaro and Riach were in Kelowna that weekend as part of crime alliance dubbed the “Wolf Pack.”

Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun, 25, Jason Thomas McBride, 37, and Michael Kerry Hunter Jones, 25, are now charged with first-degree murder. Each are also charged with four counts of attempted murder in the incident.

The announcement was made by members of B.C.'s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit at a press conference in Delta, B.C.

Khun-Khun is well known to police, and was the target of a gangland shooting in 2011. He was critically injured in a Surrey shooting as he picked up a gangster from their Surrey home. Khun-Khun was shot again last month, in an incident that saw gangster Manjinder Singh Hairan executed, police added.

The three accused were arrested last week in simultaneous raids across Canada. Khun-Khun was picked up at his home in Surrey, McBride was arrested in Toronto and Jones was arrested in Vancouver.

Sgt. Lindsay Houghton, spokesperson for the CFSEU, said more than 100 police officers contributed to the 18-month investigation, dubbed “E-Nitrogen.”

Houghton said all of the men charged are linked to the late gangster Sukh Dhak, 28, a member of the Duhre crime group who was killed in a targeted attack with his bodyguard Thomas Mantel, 30, in Nov. 2012. Before his death police regularly warned that Dhak, who was on trial for drug trafficking, could be targeted by rivals following the fatal shooting of his brother outside of Metrotown Mall in 2010.

Duhre gang leader Sandip Duhre was gunned down in the lobby of the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Vancouver on Jan. 16, 2012.

Monday’s arrests could usher in another spat of retaliation gun violence, said CFSEY Supt. Dan Malo.

“Whenever we disrupt the regular organized crime activities of these violent individuals there’s always some flow that comes from that, and we need to with our police intelligence community pay particular attention to that,” Malo said.





James 'Whitey' Bulger's associates saying that C4 plastic explosive supplied to the IRA came from a corrupt FBI agent who was supposed to be one of the Irish-American gangster's handlers.

Posted On 22:48 0 comments

new book on the notorious Boston gangster, James 'Whitey' Bulger, details his meetings with the Provisional IRA in setting up the arms smuggling deal which led to the arrest of Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris in 1984.

The book also says that Bulger's involvement with the IRA "took off" after he began working as an FBI informer and quotes one of Bulger's associates saying that C4 plastic explosive supplied to the IRA came from a corrupt FBI agent who was supposed to be one of the Irish-American gangster's handlers.

The book is written by Boston Globe journalists Shelley Murphy and Kevin Cullen. Cullen, former crime correspondent for the newspaper, reported on Bulger and his gang for decades and had his life threatened by both Bulger and the corrupt FBI agent, John Connolly, now serving 40 years for involvement in three of the reputed 19 murders carried out by Bulger and his gang. Bulger, who was arrested in California in June 2011, faces trial in June on 19 murder and other charges.

Bulger is the model for the gangster Frank Costello played by Jack Nicholson in the film The Departed. The Hollywood Reporter last week said that Johnny Depp is now tipped to play Bulger in a new film by director Barry Levinson.

The Boston reporters' book contains previously unpublished material about Bulger including material about how he was approached by the Provisional IRA to supply weapons even though they were aware he was a gangster and heavily involved in the importation of drugs. It states that prior to becoming an FBI "informant", Bulger had no dealings with the IRA.

It says: "The truth was that on the night Whitey signed on as an informant there was very little he could have given (FBI agent John) Connolly on the IRA. Up to that point, he had merely donated relatively small amounts of money to Irish Northern Aid, or Noraid, the IRA's main support group in the United States.

"But now that he had the FBI in his pocket, his involvement quickly intensified. It became more than giving cash, it became a hands-on thing. Whitey first sent a small consignment of weapons to the IRA, then prevailed upon a friendly FBI agent to acquire C4 explosives for the IRA, according to Steve Flemmi (Bulger's associate who testified against him). Finally, in 1984, Whitey sanctioned and helped organise the biggest-ever shipment of weapons from the US to the IRA. He considered the mission his crowning achievement, an interlude of honour in his long criminal career. It was an audacious project, but one that was doomed to failure because of that bane of Irish revolutionaries, the informer."

As the book explains, gardai were tipped off about the shipment by their most senior informant inside the IRA, Sean O'Callaghan from Kerry. The book describes Bulger's meetings with Joe Cahill who held the twin posts of head of finance for the IRA and Sinn Fein, and who died in 2004.

It reads: "Cahill was accustomed to doing business in bar-rooms, but his haunts were usually in his native West Belfast, not South Boston.

"Still, there was a war on, and Joe Cahill would go anywhere to get weapons for the Irish Republican Army. So there he was, in the private room on the second floor of Triple O's, Whitey Bulger's redoubt on West Broadway. Cahill eyed the Irish tricolour strung across the bare brick wall with an approving nod.

"His short stature, thick eyeglasses and retiring, grandfatherly manner belied a certain ruthlessness that fit in with the men grouped around him at Triple O's. There was Whitey, whose reputation preceded him. There was Pat Nee, the Irish-born Mullen gang survivor who had gone from hunting Whitey to hunting others with him. And there was Joe Murray, Whitey's newest associate, the biggest marijuana trafficker in town."

It adds: "The IRA's association with Murray, the marijuana and cocaine importer, was even more astonishing. If Murray had sold drugs in Belfast the way he did in Boston, his friends in the IRA would have felt duty bound to shoot him; they viewed drug dealers, and their customers as more vulnerable to a squeeze by police and thus more likely to become informers.

"Whitey shared the IRA's reservations. The only thing he liked about drug dealers was the large amounts of cash he could extort from them. He had only recently hooked up with Murray. After learning that Murray had used a warehouse in Southie to store a boatload of marijuana."

The book says the IRA was told to send Cahill to Canada during the winter, so that the trips coincided with dates when the Boston Bruins hockey team was playing in Montreal. "IRA sympathisers in Charlestown and Southie then chartered a bus to bring Bruins' fans to the games. Cahill usually travelled with three companions, so four Boston hockey fans were induced to stay a few extra days in Canada."
