Identify, forfeit properties of big narco smugglers: Punjab Spl DGP to district police chiefs | Chandigarh News


Punjab’s Special Director General of Police (Law and Order) Arpit Shukla on Friday directed the police commissioners and district police chiefs to identify and forfeit properties of big narco smugglers caught with commercial quantities of drugs.

This year as many as 30 properties worth Rs 12.99 crores were seized and forfeited by the Punjab Police, he said. According to an official statement, Shukla directed CPs/SSPs to identify and forfeit properties of big narco smugglers caught with commercial quantities of drugs.

Shukla also chalked out a foolproof strategy with the Border Security Force (BSF) to completely break the supply chain of drugs and to counter the drone operations, which have emerged as the new modus operandi to smuggle drugs from across the border. Recently, CM Bhagwant Mann had vowed to make Punjab a drug-free state by the next Independence Day.

He said the chief minister had already sanctioned Rs 20 crore for the installation of CCTV Cameras in the border areas to further strengthen the second line of defence and keep vigil against drug smugglers and anti-social elements. Additionally, Rs 10 crore are being spent to strengthen the police infrastructure including police stations, he said, while adding that additional police force and vehicles are also being provided to the police deployed near the border.
