Heroin worth Rs 250 crores caught by NCB near Jammu, was packed in apple crates

NCB officials have stated that in the last 2.5 months, 160 Kgs of Heroin being smuggled from Afghanistan has been seized by them.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has caught a man carrying heroin worth Rs 250 crores hidden in the apple crates. According to reports, he was supposed to distribute the contraband to Delhi-based suppliers.

The man named Abdul was driving the truck laden with heroin when he was nabbed by the NCB at a check-post near Jammu. During the search, the NCB officers found that packets of heroin were stuffed under Apple crates in a manner that would deceive the police. 50kgs of heroin was recovered whose market value is estimated to be close to Rs 250 crores. According to the officials, the forbidden drug was being smuggled into Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara from Pakistan. The driver is being interrogated to determine the source of the contraband and those members of the drug cartel involved in smuggling.

The illicit drugs were reportedly routed from Afghanistan via Pakistan into Jammu and Kashmir. As per media reports, the driver Abdul was reportedly paid Rs 4.5 lakhs to smuggle the drug. NCB officials have reportedly stated that in the last 2.5 months, NCB has caught almost 160 Kgs of Heroin being smuggled from Afghanistan. Meanwhile, following the trail, the NCB officials have reached Kupwara and are in search of one Mehrum fruit seller in Kashmir assumed to be responsible for getting the drugs transported to the suppliers in Delhi.
