Police have booked the media in-charge of the AAP candidate from Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat in Punjab on charges of storing and selling banned narcotics.

A police team raided the house of Balwinder Singh alias Mintu Bajwa, media in-charge of AAP candidate Sucha Singh Chhotepur, last night and seized 800 capsules of banned narcotics from there.

The AAP candidate said the action was a "ploy to demoralise party cadres", a charge denied by police.

Police said they had received a tip-off that Singh, along with Ashok Kumar alias Dimple, was selling banned narcotics from his house. Both the accused, however, managed to flee before the raid, police added.

A case has been registered against the duo under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, police said.

Singh, who was earlier associated with the Congress, recently joined the Aam Aadmi Party and was made the media in-charge of the outfit's Gurdaspur unit.
