Muktsar, August 8

At a time when Opposition parties are cornering the government over the issue of drugs and liquor mafia in the state, a list of suspected drug peddlers made by the Muktsar district police and forwarded to its special branch, has gone viral on the social media.

The list of 51 suspected drug peddlers, which is in possession of The Tribune, was sent to the special branch on July 20. It was asked to give a report within five days over whether these persons were active in drug peddling activities or not.

However, the purpose of the list seems to have been defeated now as it has gone viral on the social media. "The suspected drug peddlers may have now gone underground to avoid police action. The secret document of the police is out in the public domain and it not just shows the approach of the police, but also signals that there are some black sheep in the department, which need to be identified," said Ranjit Singh, an

anti-drug crusader.

Meanwhile, sources said the police had also prepared a separate list of some suspected drug peddlers, who were considered close to a politician.

On this, Kulwant Rai, SP (PBI), Muktsar, said, "The list of suspected drug peddlers has gone viral on the social media. We are trying to identify the man who leaked it."
