Drones: Prime suspect held in Amritsar

Amritsar, May 29

In a major breakthrough, the Amritsar rural police arrested Ajaypal Singh, the prime suspect and alleged kingpin of a module involved in cross-border smuggling busted in January this year.

He had been absconding since then and his arrest was likely to shed light on the entire nexus, Senior Superintendent of Police (Amritsar rural) Vikram Jeet Duggal said here today. The police have arrested 10 persons in the case till now. The SSP said names of certain Pakistan-based smugglers had come to light during the investigations carried out so far.

He said the module was active for the past several months before it was busted. The police had recovered two heavy-duty drones with a remote, two wireless sets, Rs6.24-lakh drug money and a car from their possession. The SSP said a case had been registered against Dilbagh Singh, alias Bagha, of Khasa, for providing shelter to Ajaypal. — TNS
