Punjab Police have captured 676 medication bootleggers and vendors after enrolling 559 FIRs under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act across the state over the most recent seven days during an enemy of medication crusade. Police have additionally recuperated 5.57 kg of heroin, 17 kg of opium, 25 kg of marijuana, 7 quintals of poppy husk, and 2.25 lakh inebriating pills and containers during the drive.
A representative for Punjab Police said with CM Bhagwant Mann giving the Punjab Police a free hand and full freedom to take up arms against drugs, the broad enemies of medication drives were being sent off to battle the threat of medications. Upon taking over, DGP Gaurav Yadav directed all CPs and SSPs in the state to follow the Punjab government’s zero-resilience strategy against medications and to remain vigilant in drug areas of interest under their jurisdiction.
He said a total of 32 broadcast wrongdoers and absconders in NDPS cases had been captured. He said the DGP stringently requested all the CPs and SSPs to distinguish between all top medication bootleggers and the areas of interest scandalous for drug sneaking in their purviews and sent off a brushing activity to grab every one of those selling or carrying drugs. He also guided the police bosses to relinquish the property of all captured drug dealers so their not well-gotten cash could be recuperated.
He said the Punjab Police had figured out how to break into the inventory network of the medications. Muktsar Police say that because of the accessibility of heroin, drug vendors were falling back on copying heroin with the assistance of misleading materials by blending powder of patasha (a customary sweet made of sugar), washing pop, weed-executioners, and herbicides (fluid and powder) and afterward by utilising a surfactant.
He went on to say that they were selling fake heroin (chitta) wrapped in plastic foil to the poor. Meanwhile, the DGP has also asked other CPs/SSPs to pioneer new approaches to connecting with people at the grassroots level and educating them about the harmful effects of medications.
