Barnala, May 22
The Barnala police have seized 8.29 kg heroin worth Rs 40 crore from Badeke Border Outpost (BOP) from near International border with Pakistan and started further investigations.
“On May 13 our police had arrested a woman and confiscated 55 gm heroin from her possession. During questioning we got specific information that the second big consignment of heroin would be coming in some days near Badeke BOP,” said Sandeep Goel, SSP Barnala.
Goel further informed that after getting information they got in touch with Border Security Force (BSF) as its officers are responsible for checking cross border smuggling.
Today a team of Barnala police recovered the heroin after conducting search of area.
“The market value of the seized heroin is around Rs 40 crore while we would send its sample to confirm its potency. Apart from heroin, we have also seized 15 live Pakistan-made cartridges. It shows that cross border smugglers have also been supplying ammunition,” said SSP Goel.
When asked whether cops have arrested anyone, SSP Goel said they had been conducting further investigations to arrest the persons involved in the supply of heroin.
