The Jalandhar rural police arrested three drug peddlers on Friday evening, including a woman and a Nigerian national, and recovered 5-kg heroin from their possession at two separate nakas.

The accused have been identified as Veeryodh Singh of Laiawal village, Pooja of Latiawal village in Kapurthala and Victor Admye David of Abuja State Abuja, Nigeria.

At a press meet, Jalandhar rural SSP Navjot Singh Mahal said assistant sub-inspector Manjit Singh from the Lohian police station received a tip-off that Veeryodh and Pooja were going to deliver a consignment of heroin in the area from Kapurthala, following which Lohian SHO Dalvir Singh, along with woman sub-inspector Amandeep Kaur Mahi, laid a trap at Chachowal bus stand. They spotted a man and woman who tried to outsmart the police by entering the bus stand on seeing cops. On being frisked, the cops seized 1.5-kg heroin from Veeryodh’s bag and 1 kg from Pooja’s purse.

The duo was taken into custody and a case under Section 21 of the NDPS Act was registered against them. The SSP said while Veeryodh already faces two cases, Pooja is a proclaimed offender and already booked in two cases.

The SSP said that in a separate case, sub-inspector Gurdev Singh along with a police team, carrying out nakabandi at Sutlej Bridge in Phillaur, received a tip-off that a smuggler, Victor Admye David, of Abuja State Abuja, Nigeria, is travelling in a bus from Delhi to Jalandhar to deliver a heavy consignment of heroin.
