JAMMU: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has seized 50 kilograms of heroin, worth Rs 250 crore in the international market, from a truck on Jammu-Srinagar Highway, an officer informed here on Thursday amid commotion over the startling revelation made in a report published by the STATE TIMES in its Wednesday edition regarding fate of huge consignments of narcotics seized by police, NCB and other law enforcing agencies.
Acting on a tip-off, a Delhi-bound truck coming from north Kashmir’s Kupwara district was intercepted by the NCB sleuths at a Ban Toll Plaza near Jammu on Monday, said NCB Zonal Director Virender Yadav while interacting with media persons here.
Fifty drug pouches stuffed under apple crates were found. The truck driver has been arrested, Yadav said, adding that the seized heroin’s value was Rs 250 crore in the international market.
“The NCB has seized 161 kg of heroin valuing Rs 800 crore from Jammu alone and this is the third biggest seizure of heroin this year in India,” Yadav asserted.
