Amritsar, June 7

Three drug peddlers, including a woman, who were recently nabbed with 14-kg opium and Rs 4 lakh by the rural police were produced in a local court today, which sent them to five-day police remand.

The arrested peddlers have been identified as Inderjit Singh Malhi of Atari, Gurdev Singh Mota of Ranike village and Manpreet Kaur of Dhanoe Kalan village. Her husband Rajinder Singh is still on the loose, and raids to nab him are under way.

The police have also recovered a brand new Thar jeep, a scooter and a car from their possession, said Deputy Superintendent of Police (Atari) Parvesh Chopra.

Besides opium and drug money, the police have also confiscated a pistol, two magazines and four bullets from their possession. Chopra said Inderjit and Rajinder’s arms licences were fake. He said the investigation carried out so far reveals that the suspect used to procure opium from Rajasthan. They had already sold off 3 kg of opium.

The police also retrieved some packing material and mobile phones from the spot. Manpreet, her husband Rajinder and Inderjit are all history-sheeters.
