The district police arrested two drug smugglers and seized 73,000 drug tablets from their possession. Patiala SSP Sandeep Kumar Garg said a police party comprising SP Mehtab Singh, DSP Krishan Kumar Panthe and Inspector Rahul Kaushal, incharge CT wing, arrested the two drug smugglers with the pills.

Garg said a team of the CT wing arrested Gurbaj Singh (30), alias Gagan, and Pal Singh (26), both residents of Samana city, on October 6. “Both were arrested and an FIR under Section 22, 61 and 85 of the NDPS Act was registered against them at the Sadar Samana police station,” he said.
