Amritsar, October 26

A team of Gurdaspur police has neutralised a drug nexus by arresting gangster Sukhdeep Singh along with two of his accomplices.

The three were involved in the smuggling of 22 kg heroin from the Pakistan border nine months ago, besides other crimes. Besides Sukhdeep, who belongs to Rudiana village, the others arrested include Harvinder Singh Dhodi and Harjeet Singh. Three pistols, 27 live cartridges, two cars and around Rs 40,000 in cash have been seized.

IG Border Range SPS Parmar said a special investigation team, led by Gurdaspur SP Harvinder Singh Sandhu, got a tip off about the movement of Sukhdeep and Dhodi on October 25. They were caught at Chaura Chowk. Sukhdeep revealed the involvement of Harjeet Singh in the crime and he too was arrested. The IG said the suspects were wanted in a number of robbery and loot cases registered in Gurdaspur, Amritsar and Tarn Taran.

They were involved in a bank dacoity committed on July 29 at Rudiana village in which Rs 5.5 lakh were looted. "The process is on to seal their bank accounts too," the IG added.
