BSF recovers heroin worth Rs 25 cr near IB in Jammu

JAMMU: The Border Security Force (BSF) Thursday recovered five kilograms of heroin worth Rs 25 crore near the International Border (IB) here, foiling an attempt by the drug traffickers to smuggle the consignment into the country.

The consignment, seized about 100 metres ahead of the fence inside Indian territory in Suchetgarh sector, was smuggled from Pakistan and was suspected to be taken to Punjab through local Indian smugglers working for a Pakistan smuggling group run by notorious peddler Chaudhary Akram, a BSF spokesman said.
