Ferozepur police today recovered 4.820 kg heroin in six plastic bottles along with 5 live cartridges from near the border fencing of DT Mal Border Operation Post in a joint search operation with the Border Security Force.
Ferozepur police will shortly start a ‘feedback campaign’ to crack the drug supplies said SSP Ferozeur while holding the press conference with the recovery of heroin from near Indo-Pak border.
With this recovery, the Ferozepur SSP Sandeep Goel has honoured his commitment of war-against-drugs in a video that has gone viral giving a warning to black sheep in force and those involved in unethical practices and corruption and correct themselves for the sake of the next generation.
Addressing the media persons, SSP Sandeep Goel said, as per input provided by a reliable source it was learnt that some Indian smugglers are in collusion with the Pakistani smugglers and are trying to smuggle a large cache of Heroin and arms and ammunition into India.
He further informed that one such consignment of heroin and ammunition has already been smuggled into the India side in the area near the DT Mall BOP.
Acting on this specific information a joint search operation of Ferozepur Police and BSF was launched. During the operation, 6 plastic bottles suspected to be filled with heroin – weighing 4.820 kgs, along with 5 live cartridges of 7.63 caliber (Parwaz) were recovered.
Accordingly a case FIR No.57 dated 20.6.2019 under Secrions 21/61/85 NDPS Act 1988 and 24/54/59 Arms Act was registered at Police Station Mamdot, against unknown accused. However, further investigations are on.
No doubt, all security agencies are working at their own to curb drug menace but its complete eradication is not possible by the police and people has to come forward to join hands with the police, he said. Earlier also, he made it clear that your child will pay for it, if you indulge in corrupt practices.
In Ferozepur, we taking as a part of corrective measures started holding the public meetings with the villagers as a part of covering all the 600 villages in the district. Shortly he will come up with new innovative idea for getting a feedback to bring efficiency in the system to crack the drug supplies, he added.
He asked the media persons to popularize among the people to use 112 and 181 toll free numbers for passing on any information, for quick actions so that the system should work smoothly instead of everyone calling SSP.
