Rs 1 cr narcotics seized in Kurukshetra

Kurukshetra, October 30

The Kurukshetra police have recovered 10 quintal 'chura post' and 'doda post' and 34 kg ganja. They have arrested three men in connection with the narcotics, worth around Rs 1 crore, which were seized from a house near Masana village on the Delhi-Amritsar national highway in Kurukshetra on Friday.

The suspects have been identified as Roshan Lal Saini, a resident of Dhantauri village of Kurukshetra, Firoz Khan, a resident of Yamunanagar, and Sandeep, a resident of Shahabad.

Roshan Lal runs the Shiv Gorakh dhaba on the national highway. He has been booked in NDPS cases in the past too and was presently out on bail in another NDPS case registered in Kurukshetra.

Superintendent of Police Rajesh Duggal said, "There were reports of narcotics being sold on the national highway following which the CIA-1 and CIA-2 units were asked to keep a watch on such activities. The CIA-1 unit headed by inspector Jaspal Singh got a tip-off that Roshan Lal and his employees were involved in drug peddling. They have stocked the narcotics in a house near the dhaba and through their accomplices, they sell the narcotics to truck drivers at dhaba. For the past few days, CIA-1 was keeping a watch on them and today, the raid was conducted."

Nayab Tehsildar Jaivir Ranga was appointed duty magistrate for the raid. Along with the narcotics, the police have also seized two packing machines and empty polybags from their possession. They will be produced in court on Saturday. — TNS
