NCB busts intl’ drug syndicate being run from Punjab, Afghan national among 16 arrested

NEW DELHI, JANUARY 9: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Monday claimed to have busted the “entire chain” of an international drugs syndicate, being operated from Ludhiana in Punjab, with the arrest of 16 persons including two Afghan nationals and seizure of about 60 kgs of contraband and some am- munition.

The syndicate was busted in a period of about 1.5 months and it has links with the Shaheen Bagh (Delhi) and Muzaffarnagar (Uttar Pradesh) drug busts unearthed by the agency last year, NCB deputy director general (northern region) Gyaneshwar Singh said in a statement.

He said the probe in the latest case began in mid-November after the Chandigarh zonal bureau of the federal anti-narcotics agency busted two illegal heroin processing laboratories located in Ludhiana, being run by two Afghan chemists.

“This international drug syndicate is spread across countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan etc. and different states of India,” he said. “More than 60 bank accounts linked to this Ludhiana group have been frozen under the provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act till now,” Singh said.
