Chandigarh: The State Special Operation Cell (SSOC) of the Punjab Police has made a significant seizure with the arrest of a drug dealer and the confiscation of 12 kg of heroin that was being trafficked from Pakistan via drone.
Guarav Yadav, director general of police, reported that Harpreet Singh, the accused, had been taken into custody in the Punjabi district of Ferozepur. He was using a drone to carry heroin out of Pakistan, which the authorities also found in his hands.
According to Yadav, the arrest of Harpreet Singh and the discovery of 12 kg of heroin represents a significant setback for transnational drug trafficking organizations. He asserted that the Punjab Police is dedicated to establishing Punjab a drug-free state and will keep up its ruthless pursuit of drug traffickers.
In recent months, the Punjab Police’s SSOC has been instrumental in dismantling drug trafficking networks and seizing significant amounts of drugs. Three drug traffickers were detained by the SSOC in Amritsar in August of this year, and 12 kg of heroin was taken from their possession.
The arrest of Harpreet Singh and the discovery of 12 kg of heroin represent big victories for the Punjab Police at a time when the region is grappling with a significant drug issue. The Punjabi administration has prioritized taking action against drug trafficking and eradicating drugs from the state.
