Heroin worth Rs50 cr seized in Ferozepur

Moga/Ferozepur, February 19

The BSF seized 10.265 kg heroin, worth around Rs 50 crore in the international market, in the Mamdot area of Ferozepur district along the Indo-Pak border this morning.

BSF jawans reportedly spotted the movement of suspects along the border near Gatti Hayat village across the fencing on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday.

The BSF jawans tried to nab them, but the suspects managed to flee into the Pakistan territory, taking advantage of dense fog. In the morning, a search operation was launched in which at least 10 packets of heroin weighing 10.265 kg were seized.

The BSF has already confiscated over 91.679 kg heroin along the Indo-Pak border in Punjab during the past 7 weeks. At least, 11 Pakistani smugglers were also arrested and two intruders killed, a spokesman for the BSF said.

Five weapons, six magazines, 49 bullets and two mobile phones were also seized during this period. — TNS
