Tribune News Service
Moga, January 1

The police have arrested Baljit Singh, an assistant sub-inspector of the special task force (STF), along with a woman and his driver on charges of financing illicit drug trafficking and harbouring drug offenders.

The two have been identified as Karamveer Kaur, alias Kiran Kaur, and driver Jagat Narayan Jaggi.

A police official said a criminal case under Section 27-A of the NDPS Act and the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, had been registered against them.

Soon after the arrest, the three were produced in the court of a judicial magistrate, who remanded them in police custody till January 4.

One of the associates of the ASI, Gurmeet Singh, is at large and the local police have launched a hunt to nab him.

Preliminary investigations suggested the ASI allegedly used his influence to fabricate cases against local resident Baltej Singh in cahoots with latter's wife Karamveer Kaur, who was not enjoying good relations with her husband.

They allegedly sold a plot, bought by Baltej, to a local politician and the money was reportedly taken by the arrested police officer.
