Amritsar, June 4
Even as the police have launched a manhunt to nab Chetan Parmar, a politician from Himachal Pradesh, along with his other accomplices in connection with the seizure of huge quantity of scheduled H drug tramadol from a factory in Paonta Sahib, the police on Friday arrested Ranu Bhargav from Zirakpur.
The police have also brought Prem Kumar Jha, a medical store owner on production warrant from Kurukshetra, Haryana. Jha used to run a medical store in the name of Mansi Medicos in Mayur Vihar in Delhi from where tramadol was smuggled into different parts of Punjab and Haryana, besides Delhi. Following the seizure of tramadol tablets and capsules from Paonta Sahib, the Amritsar (rural) police had raided in Delhi where they came to know about Jha’s arrest by the Haryana Police in a similar case.
The police had already nabbed factory owner Manish Mohan and two others in the case. The police have nominated Chetan Parmar, Ranu Bhardwaj and Tarun Batra in the case. Parmar owned the building where the factory was running. The police had seized tramadol worth Rs 15 crore from the spot during a raid on May 28.
Parmar is a prominent figure and son of five-time MLA Kush Parmar. He had joined BJP in 2017. Meanwhile, police teams were raiding in different parts of Haryana, Delhi and Punjab to expose the entire nexus.
SSP Dhruv Dahiya said the firm was zeroed in following the seizure of 50,000 tramadol capsules by the Mattewal police on May 18. The police had nabbed three drug peddlers identified- Samir Kumar and Suraj Kumar of Majitha road and Gurmukh Singh of Mallunangal village. The bills were issued in the name of HR Enterprises, however, the probe found that the firm did not exist. Several persons from Chandigarh and Mohali had mediated in the delivery of the drug consignment and they were being identified, said Dahiya.
