Amritsar: Six kgs of heroin with a street
value of Rs six crore, an AK-47 rifle and 100 live cartridges
smuggled from Pakistan via Punjab border were seized here
on Saturday and two persons arrested, police said.
Acting on a tip-off, the State Special Operation Cell
(SSOC) of Punjab Police nabbed the two alleged smugglers near
the Indo-Pak border when they were going to deliver the
consignment to another place.
The drugs, arms and ammunition, which also included four
magazines, were smuggled to India from Pakistan recently, SP

Singh said the two arrested men have been identified as
Satnam Singh and Harjinder Singh, residents of border village
Ramdas. They told interrogators that the items were brought to
India with the help of Pakistani smugglers.
The duo was constantly in touch with their Pakistani
counterparts, Singh said adding, the source of the contraband
and the area from where it was smuggled are being ascertained.
Investigations are being conducted to unearth the network
of the smugglers, he said.
