Biggest ever haul of heroin worth over Rs 250 crore seized in Jammu

JAMMU: In a major success against drug trafficking and possible narco-terrorism, the Jammu and Kashmir police today seized 51 kilograms of high-grade Afghan-origin heroin worth over Rs 250 crore from a Punjab-bound truck here.
The police also arrested the truck driver and his helper following “the biggest ever catch” in Jammu region and are questioning them to unveil the persons involved in the drug trafficking, Jammu’s Inspector General of Police S D Singh Jamwal told reporters here this evening.
Without ruling out the possibility of the consignment being part of narco-terrorism with the sale proceeds of the consignment meant for terror funding, the IGP said, “It’s a matter of investigation and we are on the job.” (AGENCIES)
