The police have nabbed six drug peddlers and recovered heroin from their possession. The suspects have been identified as Pawan Kumar Pandit, alias Prince, of Bagru Mohalla; Robin of New Rajguru Nagar, Sumant, alias Mani, of New Atam Nagar; Karamjit Singh Bobby of Manjit Nagar, Faldeep Singh Bobby of Dhoka Mohalla, and Mohit, alias Monu, of Basti Jodhewal.

Additional DCP 1 Gurpreet Singh Sikand said 203 gram of heroin was recovered from Pawan while 10 gram each was recovered from the other five suspects.

Sikand said they got information that the suspects were doing heroin in a vacant plot near Khawaja Kothi. The police raided the place and nabbed the suspects.

All suspects are drug addicts. They took to drug peddling to become rich in a short span of time, said the police.

Pawan is already facing a drug case registered against him in May this year at the Division 3 police station.

Meanwhile, the Division 3 police nabbed a drug peddler, identified as Harvinder Singh Monu of Mehmudpura, and recovered 13 gram of heroin from his possession. Division 3 SHO Satish Kumar said Harvinder was also nabbed in a drug case last year, and had recently come out of jail on bail. TNS
