Ludhiana, May 17

The CIA-I wing of the city police today nabbed two smugglers and recovered 30 gm of heroin from their possession. The police also impounded the Swift car used by the smugglers to deliver drugs.

A case under the NDPS Act was today registered against the smugglers, identified as Vijay Kumar, alias Billu, resident of Shankar Colony, Tibba, and Sunny Nahar of Basti Jodhewal.

Inspector Beant Juneja, CIA chief, said both the accused have a notorious past as Vijay is facing a drug case registered against him at the Tibba police station in which he came out on bail in April 2021, while Sunny is facing three cases of drugs, also registered at the Tibba police station, and he came out on bail in July 2019.

“Both the accused are drug addicts. They have been into the illegal trade for years. They have links with big drug suppliers. We will now take their police remand from court so that the entire supply line of drugs could be busted and big suppliers in the racket could be nabbed,” added Inspector Juneja.
