JAMMU, Nov 22: Jammu and Kashmir Anti-Narcotics Task Force (ANTF) has arrested two inter-state drug dealers for supplying banned drugs in the Union Territory.
Senior Superintendent of ANTF, Vinay Kumar Sharma here said that raids were conducted in various parts of Delhi and Ghaziabad and the teams have arrested two drug dealers. “Both the arrested persons were wanted in various cases of ANTF and were the main distributors and suppliers of banned Pharmaceutical drugs in J&K,” the officer said and added that the accused were operating from Delhi and its adjoining areas including Ghaziabad.
The SSP said that two teams of ANTF were constituted which were led by Inspector Sunil Singh Jasrotia and Inspector Ankush Chib under supervision of Deputy Superintendent of Police Arun Jamwal. He said these teams conducted a series of raids in Delhi and Ghaziabad areas and with the help of Delhi and Ghaziabad Police managed to arrest the two most-wanted drug dealers.
“The accused have been identified as Ajay Gupta alias Bunty son of Gulab Chand Gupta of Govindpuram (Ghaziabad) and Shirshak Sharma alias Honey son of Hari Krishen Sharma of Naveen Shahdara (Delhi). They have been taken into custody for being wanted in several cases registered against them,” said the SSP adding that the duo used to stock and store banned Pharmaceutical drugs and later supply them to various parts including J&K.
The officer said Pharmaceutical drugs like Codeine Phosphate, Spasmo Proxyvon, Tramadol are fast replacing traditional drugs like heroin, cocaine etc and their abuse has seen a rising trend amongst the innocent youths. With the arrest of these main suppliers and distributors, ANTF has been able to break the main supply network of these kinds of drugs to J&K, he claimed.
He, however, appealed the public particularly to youth to keep away from any kind of abuse of such kinds of drugs and share any kind of information regarding drug related activities so that strict legal actions could be taken against such dealers.
