Patiala, March 31
Patiala SSP Vikram Jeet Duggal said today that the police have launched a special drive to freeze the assets of drug smugglers.
Under the campaign, movable and immovable property of an alleged drug dealer, Ashok Kumar, and his wife, Davinder Kumari, of Patran has been attached after obtaining an order from the competent authority. They were booked in June 2020 under Sections 22, 61 and 85 of the NDPS Act. Their property is worth Rs1.28 crore.
Duggal said a case was registered against Ashok Kumar and Davinder Kumari and 1,170 drug pills were seized from them. The duo had allegedly laundered land and property at various places by smuggling drugs.
Duggal said assets worth crores of rupees had already been attached by the Patiala police in several cases. He said the special drive against fugitives and drug smugglers would continue and no illegal trader and drug smuggler would escape police. — TNS
