Interstate Drug Trafficking Gang Udaipur

The Pratap Nagar police station team in Udaipur has arrested an interstate gang engaged in illegal drug trafficking. Led by Station Officer Bharat Yogi, the team conducted a successful operation resulting in the arrest of seven individuals, including five women, along the Debari Pindwara National Highway. The gang was involved in smuggling narcotics from Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh to Punjab and Haryana.

During the raid, authorities seized a substantial quantity of illicit substances, totaling 1 quintal 23 kilograms of opium concealed in 14 bags. The accused were caught red-handed, indicating a well-coordinated effort by police to combat drug-related crimes.

Further investigations revealed that the arrested individuals operated as a group, travelling from Haryana and Punjab to regions like Mewar in Rajasthan and border areas of Madhya Pradesh. Here, they procured illegal opium and opium poppy husk (known as Doda Chura) for distribution in Punjab and Haryana.

They utilized various methods to avoid detection at police checkpoints, including concealing the narcotics in separate bags and travelling via private vehicles, buses, or public transport.

Interrogations exposed the extent of the gang's activities, with the accused admitting to multiple trips using similar tactics to traffic drugs from Mewar and Madhya Pradesh to Punjab and Haryana.

Among those arrested are

  1. Sukha Singh, 36, from Pirawali village, Hisar, Haryana.
  2. Rahul Bishnoi, 19, from Ratia, Fatehabad, Haryana.
  3. Baljeet Kaur, 60, from Bhaini Bhaga, Mansa, Punjab.
  4. Karamjit Majhvi, 62, from Lal Patti, Bhaini Bhaga, Mansa, Punjab.
  5.  Amarjit Chamar, 60, from Kalipur, Mansa, Punjab.
  6. Balvinder Kaur, 60, from Virewala Khurd, Faridkot, Punjab.
  7. Suman Devi, 55, from Badri Sidhi Campus, Thana Badi, Satna district, Madhya Pradesh.

The police have initiated legal proceedings against all the accused, registering cases under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code. Investigations are ongoing to uncover further details regarding the gang's operations and associates. This successful operation underscores the commitment of law enforcement agencies to curb drug trafficking and maintain public safety.
