CHANDIGARH: The Punjab Police has wrapped up its operation to bust the transit lines of a second Pakistan-based drug cartel, following the seizure of 12 kg heroin worth Rs 60 crore and the arrest of two top smugglers, including end-recipient Raman Pandit from New Delhi.
According to Ishwar Chander, IG, the police had received a tip-off about a major heroin consignment being pushed by Pakistani smuggler Akram Dayal from Muzaffarabad in Pak-occupied Kashmir. And the illegal consignment, which would be brought in through J&K sector, was destined for Delhi-based “end-recipients”.
The police operation ended on Saturday following the interception of top smuggler Bhajan Singh from Kakkar Kalan village, who was ferrying the consignment on a motorbike, near the outskirts of Taran Taran.
And the IG revealed that three days prior to the interception of the heroin consignment, Punjab Police teams had been stationed in New Delhi to nab the “end-recipients”. Chander said Dayal had called up Bhajan and Pandit. And the duo were to receive instructions from the Pakistani end to fix a rendezvous point (RV) in Delhi for delivery of the consignment.
