Barnala, May 22

The Barnala police have seized 8.290 kg heroin worth around Rs 40 crore from Badeke Border Outpost (BOP) near the International Border with Pakistan.

"On May 13, the police arrested a woman and seized 55 gm heroin from her possession. During questioning, we came to know that the second big consignment of heroin would soon be coming at Badeke BOP," said Barnala SSP Sandeep Goel.

After getting information, they got in touch with the Border Security Force (BSF). Today, a team of the Barnala police seized heroin.

"The market value of the seized heroin is around Rs 40 crore. We will now send its sample to confirm its potency. Apart from heroin, we have also seized 15 live Pakistan-made cartridges. It shows that cross-border smugglers have also been supplying ammunition also," Goel said. Efforts were on to arrest those involved in the case, he said.
