Srinagar: – The Jammu and Kashmir police has busted an international gang involved in smuggling of narcotics. The police have arrested seven people in this connection, and two of them have been found to be involved in the 2005 bomb blast in Delhi. The notorious Pakistani intelligence agency, ISI, is carrying out large scale smuggling of narcotics through the Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir borders. The revenue generated from this illicit sale is used for funding terrorist activities. Therefore, the arrest of this gang is a major jolt to the ‘Narco Terrorism’ of the ISI.
Last month, 62 kilograms of Heroin, worth ₹3 billion, was seized in the RS Pura Sector of Jammu and Kashmir. 2 pistols and 100 live cartridges of Chinese make also were seized. The BSF acted to seize the narcotics haul on noticing that 3 to 4 Pakistanis were trying to smuggle it across the Indian border. The Jammu and Kashmir police informed that the investigation in this matter led to the gang involved in narcotics smuggling.
This is an international racket, and the Narco terror gang is run from Lahore and Sialkot in Pakistan and Dubai. The Indian head honcho, Gurupratap Singh, has also been arrested. He is from Tarn Taran district of Punjab. The action was led by the supervision of RS Pura’s superintendent of Police, Shabir Khan. Two out of the seven people arrested had been to the India-Pakistan international border in RS Pura last month to receive a consignment of narcotics. But both of them escaped, taking advantage of the darkness on the BSF warning, on noticing suspicious movements.
The police reached the gang without any tipoff. Two of these people were also involved in the 2005 Delhi blasts. They had even been arrested in that connection. This gang has been involved in smuggling of narcotics many times, and it was the same gang who had smuggled 11 kilograms of Heroin in RS Pura in the month of September.
