Two cross-border drug peddlers, including a Punjabi singer, were arrested with 1-kg heroin by sleuths of the Counter Intelligence and State Security Operations Cell (SSOC), Fazilka, along the Ferozepur-Fazilka highway here last night.

Ajay Maluja, AIG (Counter Intelligence), today said on a tip-off, the CI sleuths intercepted a car on the Ferozepur-Fazilka highway in which three persons were travelling, following which the accused tried to escape by taking a detour.

However, the CI team followed them and again intercepted them. Maluja said while two persons identified as Harjinder Singh, alias Kalakar, of Alfuke village and Lakhbir Singh of Gandhu Khilcha village were arrested, their third accomplice managed to flee after attacking a policeman.

The third accused, later identified as Harjinder Singh, hit constable Amardeep Singh on his head with a brick when the latter was trying to overpower him and escaped.

The AIG said during the search of the two arrested, four packets of heroin, weighing 250 gm each, were recovered. He said during preliminary interrogation, the accused admitted that they had brought the consignment from Pakistan through border outpost DT Mal along the zero line in the gearbox of their tractor.

The AIG said a case had been registered. Accused Harjinder Singh had released his music album some time back.
