Fatehgarh Sahib, August 4

The police claimed to have busted a gang of drug suppliers with the arrest of two peddlers and seized 80 kg of poppy husk from them, which they had brought from Jharkhand and were going to supply in surrounding areas of Ludhiana.

The SSP, Dr Ravjot Grewal, said the anti-narcotic and special cell team of the district police led by Inspector Harminder Singh laid a naka near Multani Dhaba on the GT Road, Sirhind, for checking of vehicles. The police signalled a truck to stop for checking at the naka.

The driver tried to flee, but after chase, cops overpowered both truck occupants identified as Lakhdeep Singh, a resident of Lotta Joga village under the Kum Kalan police station and Mandeep Singh, a resident of Gill village, the SSP added.

During the search, the police seized 80 kg of poppy husk hidden in a specially designed box of the truck, the SSP said.

During preliminary interrogation, the peddlers revealed that they used to bring poppy husk and other drugs from Jharkhand and supply these in and around Ludhiana, the SSP added.

They had been supplying drugs in the area for a long time, the SSP said.
