Jhajjar, February 23

The Bahadurgarh CIA-II branch today unearthed a drug smuggling racket with the arrest of three persons and recovery of 45 kgs of ganja from their car.

Inspector Vivek Malik, who is the incharge of Bahadurgarh CIA-II, said the suspects, identified as Sombir, Sukhbir of Panihar village in Hisar district and Jai Prakash of Garanpur village in Bhiwani, used to bring the drugs from Odisha and Andhra Pradesh for the sale in Hisar and Fatehabad area.

“In the past, Jai Prakash was arrested on the charge of carrying opium and a case in this regard was registered against him at the City police Station in Fatehabad district. Sombir is the kingpin of the racket, who was taken on remand. It is expected that more vital information about other members of the racket will come out,” he said.

Inspector Vivek said his team was patrolling on the Rohtak road when it received a tip-off about smuggling of drugs in a car.

They immediately set up a naka near the Guda Canal on the Jhajjar-Rohtak road and started checking vehicles, he added.

“During the checking, police personnel signalled a car to stop at the naka. An official of the Excise Department was called on the spot. During the checking of the car, 45 kgs of ganja packed in a plastic bag was recovered. All three suspects were immediately taken into custody,” said the Inspector.

He said the suspects were produced in a local court on Friday, which sent Jai Prakash and Sukhbir to judicial custody, while Sombir was sent to 6-day police remand.
