Early Times Report

Jammu, June 1: Intensifying the campaign to snap the supply line of narcotics in the Union Territory, the Anti-Narcotics Task Force (ANTF) of Jammu and Kashmir arrested two interstate drug peddlers of Punjab from Rajouri.
The accused have been identified as Onkar Singh and Shamsher Singh, both residents of Gurdaspur district of Punjab the police said.
With these arrests, cops have been investigating their link with terrorists because they used to deposit money in the accounts of drug lords of Jammu and Kashmir.
As reported earlier, some top terrorists of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) outfits, based across the border in Pakistan, are generating funds by selling narcotics drugs to finance terror outfits active in the J&K.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) in its chargesheet, against the seven arrested terrorists in Handwara narco-terrorism case, had exposed the nefarious designs of terror groups and drug mafia of different states. This narco-terrorism case was initially registered in the Handwara police station but later handed over to the NIA.
The deep-rooted conspiracy for procuring and selling narcotics drugs and generating funds in J-K and other parts of India was unearthed during the questioning of seven arrested accused in the Handwara narco-terrorism case.
Earlier the Anti-Narcotics Task Force (ANTF) of Jammu and Kashmir had arrested an interstate drug peddler from Punjab's Kathgarh after conducting a series of raids in different areas of Punjab for three successive days. Raids were conducted at Balchaur, Kathgarh, and Nawashahar areas of Punjab.
The arrested person was identified as Bachittar Singh from village Jandi Kathgarh and was “most wanted” by the Police Station ANTF Jammu under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.
The ANTF had brought Bachittar Singh to Jammu for further investigation to probe the link of this module with narco-terrorism.
Singh was the main receiver of Narcotics and Psychotropic drugs, smuggled from Jammu and Kashmir to the Punjab area.
