The Dehlon police have added the name of a driver-turned-transporter in the FIR registered in a drug case.

The suspect was identified as Mukesh Kumar of Masinghan village. Earlier, the police had booked Hoshiar Singh Soni of Jodhan village and Jammu Singh of Ghungrana in the case registered on Saturday. Jammu was arrested yesterday, while the other two are at large.

An investigation team, led by SHO Varinder Singh and Subhash Kataria, found that Hoshiar Singh, Jammu Singh and Mukesh Kumar had been involved in smuggling of narcotics by hiding these under trade goods transported from neighboring states.

Poppy husk in a huge quantity was brought in a truck (PB11AQ-9185) on Saturday and it was to be supplied among local dealers at a deserted spot on the road leading to Ghungrana Dry Port on the outskirts of Lehra village in this district.

Following a tip-off, the police conducted a raid at the Dry Port road, but the suspects managed to flee. Jammu Singh was later arrested with the truck. In all, 50 bags of poppy husk, each weighing 20 kg, were recovered.

The police are yet to nab the kingpin Soni and Mukesh Kumar and seize other vehicles used in crime.

The police have also initiated a process to identify the movable and immovable assets purchased by the suspects with the money earned from the illicit trade so that necessary action can be taken for forfeiting those properties.

“We have already started collecting information about movable and immovable assets made by the suspects during the past decade and will take legal course to forfeit those purchased with illegal income earned through illicit trade or drug peddling,” said Kataria.
