Bathinda, April 10
Amid curfew, two men rode a two-wheeler to Delhi crossing two states to get heroin. They even made a fake curfew pass so that nobody intercepted them on the way.
They came back to Bathinda after buying heroin from Delhi, but were nabbed by the STF in the town. However, the police have not been able to recover the fake curfew pass from them.
The STF arrested them for carrying 110 gram heroin and registered a case against them at the Thermal police station here. Police have also started a probe as to how did they procure the fake pass.
Special Task Force (STF) in-charge Naveen Kumar said SI Kulwinder Singh on Thursday was doing patrolling on the road to Model Town Phase 4 from Ballaram Nagar in the town. In Ballaram Nagar accused Anshul Kumar of Shakti Vihar and Khushpreet Singh of Baba Farid Nagar were standing near their white Scooty holding a white-colour polythene bag.
Police checked the polythene bag and found 110 gram heroin in it. They arrested the accused and booked them under the NDPS Act.
Police said they had brought the heroin from Delhi and earlier also many cases of drug smuggling had been registered against Anshul.
In the investigation, it was found that the accused had gone to Delhi by making a fake pass and come back after purchasing heroin from there. Police have taken them on remand.
