Early Times Report
KUPWARA, Apr 8: Police in Kupwara claimed to have recovered a Heroin consignment worth crores on busting of a typical Pakistan-sponsored narco-terror module in Karnah forest area in this north-Kashmir district on Thursday afternoon.
SSP Kupwara GV Sundeep in a press conference at District Headquarter said that one Mukhtar Ahmad Shah, a resident of Panjitara in Tanghdar was arrested in this regard, leading to recovery of nine-kilograms of Heroin. The estimated market value of the contraband, as per the officer, is somewhere between 50-60 crores.
"We were onto it for the last one week after receiving specific inputs and it was last night Kupwara police alongside 6 JAK RIF made the successful recovery of the contraband", said SSP.
He said that, "The identified smuggler has been in contact with handlers across the borders", the officer said adding that "All those models and smugglers are involved in supporting the militant organizations."
"Whenever we arrest the smugglers or bust the narco-models, it exposes the links between the formers' with Pakistan", the officer said.
The top police official further said that, "They have a modus operandi of pushing the handlers and smugglers across the borders with a aim to exchange the drugs in lieu of money to support the militant organizations", the officer said adding that "This is a big hawala racket as money is transferred without money movement to finance militant organizations."
"A case FIR number 22/2021 under section 8/21 NDPS Act has been registered at police station Karnah and further investigations taken up in this regard, adding a special investigation Team (SIT) has been constituted to ascertain the details of accused ties with terrorist outfits, radicals, smugglers and other anti national elements.
Police requests parents and civil society to play their role in strengthening their fight to combat the menace for the larger benefit of society, adding we firmly vouch to eradicate the menace and won't come easy on people involved in such activities.
Kupwara Police once again appeals to the people of the district to come forward with the information regarding drug peddlers/smugglers so that the curative steps can be taken against them.
