Chinese national Luo Sang arrested by IT Department for running hawala racket and living in India for six years under fake identity

Reportedly prime accused in the delhi hawala racket Luo Sang alias charlie Peng was earning enough profit even when he was 19. Back in tibet, he started off as a trader in a local medicinal herb called Dong Chong Xia Cao. In 2009, at the age of 31, he went to nepal on foot along with six Tibetans. Then in 2014, he came to majnu ka Tila in delhi on a bus from Kathmandu.
Four years later, in september 2018, he was arrested by the Special Cell of delhi police on charges of espionage. police had alleged he was spying for china and also running money laundering and hawala businesses. However, he was let go by the court. india Today has accessed details of Sang's interrogation while in delhi Police's custody.

Born in Tibet's Lhasa, Sang had told interrogators that he had a broken childhood. His parents separated when he was only eight months old; his mother married another man and settled in Nanjing, where he did his schooling.
In nepal, Sang stayed in a Gelug monastery near Kathmandu for five years. There, he restarted his herbs business, and again earned good money. Sang told sleuths that at the monastery some people suggested that he go to india to earn more money.

In majnu ka Tila, he was staying at punjabi basti and started doing business in clothes and shoes which he used to order through the online portal 'Alibaba'. As he knew Chinese, he was able to converse with Chinese exporters and earned their faith. After a brief stint in bengaluru, he returned to delhi and procured Aadhaar and PAN cards through a tout. As his business grew, Sang shifted from Dwarka to Gurugram and opened a company in the name of Sunhara Bird india Private Limited, from where he was running a money exchange business. Though agencies are investigating Peng's Chinese links, it appears he never really hid them.
