 International Drug Racket Busted In Ludhiana
Police claimed to have busted an international drug racket with the arrest of three persons in Ludhiana.

Police recovered heroin worth 200 million rupees, a revolver, 6 live cartridges and nine lakhs of rupees from their possession.

Addressing reporters here, Jaskaran Singh, additional intelligence general, counterintelligence cell, said an attempt was on to mount large-scale smuggling of heroin.

"We have busted an international racket involved in smuggling of drugs. Recently, a chief of an international drug smuggling gang came to India from Canada and mobilised a team of three people for collecting and smuggling heroin on a mass scale. We broke the nexus and arrested three people from Ludhiana," he said.

The amount of narcotic and psychotropic substances recovered in Punjab is reported to have increased substantially over the last three years.
