Shimla, August 30

The district police have arrested a resident of Rohtak in Haryana and two others following the seizure of 19.54 gm of chitta (adulterated heroin) from the possession of an HRTC bus passenger at Shoghi barrier on August 19.

In their bid to break the supply chain, the police zeroed in on Suraj (20), who originally hails from Bilaspur, but now resides in Rohtak. Sources said Suraj had sent the consignment to one Purav (23) through courier. Purav handed it over to Gaurav to be supplied to a  peddler in Shimla. Following a tip-off, the police intercepted the HRTC bus on which Gaurav was travelling and arrested him after recovering 19.54 gm of chitta from his possession. He was booked under Section 21 of the NDPS Act. Later, both Purav and Suraj were also arrested.

Sources said there was a spurt in chitta smuggling cases in the state forcing the cops to increase vigilance. — TNS
