Fazilka SSP Bhupinder Singh said Jagdish Kumar, incharge, CIA staff, Fazilka, received a tip-off that a local smuggler, having links with Pakistan-based peddlers, wanted to supply drugs through a route near the Gulaba Bhaini border outpost.

The SSP said a special team was constituted which coordinated with BSF officials and launched a search drive during which 2.6-kg heroin worth more than Rs 5 crore was seized. It came to light that Mehal Singh of Mianwala village, Jalalabad, smuggled the contraband from Pakistan.
