Pak Narco smuggling foiled in JK


Security Forces recover Rs 50 Cr contraband

Kupwara, April 14: In a major success, the Indian Army, Indian Army and the Border Security Force (BSF) along with the and Police, Pakistan-sponsored narcotics smuggling attempt in forward areas of Tangdhar Sector on Tuesday night and recovered 10 kilograms of narcotics.

The approximated price of the seized substances is said to be Rs 50 crore.

According to an official statement, this is the second consecutive busting of Pakistan-sponsored ‘Narco Terror Model' in the past week. A 10 kg heroin consignment was recovered from the same general area a week ago in a joint operation, however, this time the smugglers were spotted carrying the narcotics along the Line of Control (LoC).

“The Indian Army and the BSF's strong anti-filtration posture denied the smugglers accompanied by Pakistan-based terrorists the opportunity to cross the fence and forced them to abandon their consignment and flee. Local sources have affirmed high likelihood of arrests of certain kingpins in upcoming days,” read the statement

Narcoterrorism has been Pakistan's long espoused model to culturally degrade the social fabric of the border areas of Kashmir & . This attempt of Pakistan to support smugglers with armed terrorists has exposed the nexus.

“Pakistan handlers controlling the nexus get money in lieu of the narcotics supplied which is in turn used to fund terror organisations operating in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Pakistan Army is a key stakeholder in this Narco-Terror nexus which involves using of civilians on both sides of the Line of Control as cannon fodder. The modus operandi involves pushing the handlers and smugglers across the borders with an aim to exchange the drugs in lieu of money to support the militant organisations,” the statement added.

Parents and civil society in the past have been urged to play their role in strengthening their fight to combat the menace for the larger benefit of society. Pakistan's nefarious designs have not only affected the youth of Jammu and Kashmir but also those in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir who are actively involved in narcotics consumption and smuggling, said the Army.
