Chandigarh, May 18

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today demanded an independent inquiry into the “drug trade” across Punjab during the past two months of curfew.

It alleged Congress ministers, legislators and leaders had openly patronised smugglers like Vinod Kumar, alias Sonu Baba, by facilitating them with curfew passes to ensure hassle-free home delivery of drugs.

In a statement, SAD leader Maheshinder Singh Grewal said the arrest of Sonu Baba in Moga with a consignment of 2,000 tramadol tablets had unearthed the new business started by Congressmen to earn money during the curfew.

Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) senior leader Aman Arora, in a letter to Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, said the smuggling of liquor on a large scale was not possible without the collusion between politicians and liquor factory owners. Arora demanded the constitution of a joint committee of all-party MLAs to enable it expose the liquor mafia.
