Chandigarh, December 12

With the arrest of two persons and seizure of 4 kg heroin, the Punjab Police have busted a major drug cartel with an international trail as well as links to gangsters and terrorists.

Initial investigations have exposed a powerful nexus of the accused, identified as Jaswinder Singh alias Jass and Ramesh Kumar alias Kesa, both natives of Jalandhar Rural district, with some gangsters lodged in Punjab jails as well as a Dubai-based smuggler.

According to DGP Dinkar Gupta, the investigations so far suggest that the proceeds generated from the sale of the drugs, smuggled into Punjab from Kashmir, were probably being used to fund terror activities. Further investigations are in progress to unravel the full international conspiracy and network, complete with backward and forward linkages, he said.

Besides the heroin, two 'desi' .32 bore pistols (with 10 live rounds) and a car have also been seized from the accused who used to bring drugs from Srinagar on instructions from imprisoned gangsters in Punjab. The drug cartel's links have been traced to a Dubai-based individual who is allegedly involved in networking with the drug smugglers in Kashmir for supply of drugs to drug smugglers and traffickers based in Punjab.

The DGP said that the Jalandhar (Rural) Police had received inputs of Jaswinder Singh, Ramesh Kumar and Gursewak Singh operating a drug network under instructions from one Palwinder Singh alias Pinda, who is currently lodged in Ferozepur jail.

Following the tip-off, the police conducted intelligence-led raids under the direct supervision of Sandeep Garg, SSP Jalandhar, leading to the arrest of Jaswinder Singh and Ramesh Kumar from the former's house in Lohian village in Jalandhar (Rural) district. Their accomplice, Gursewak Singh, is absconding and a manhunt has been launched for him.
