Chandigarh, November 5

The Punjab Police on Monday froze assets worth over Rs 3.90 crore belonging to eight Tarn Taran drug peddlers apprehended under various provisions of the NDPS Act.

All movable and immovable properties of the drug smugglers have been frozen immediately after the police received a clearance from the Department of Revenue, Government of India — the competent authority in this case, according to an official spokesperson. The police had sought clearance for the same under the Smugglers and Foreign Exchange Manipulators (Forfeiture of Property) Act-1976 and under Section 68F (2) of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS), 1985.

Giving details, a police spokesperson said the action was expected to strengthen the campaign launched by the Capt Amarinder Singh-led Congress government to wipe out the drug menace from the state.

The peddlers whose assets have been frozen include Mukhtiar Singh Kaka (over Rs 1.20 crore), Sukhbir Singh (Rs 73.22 lakh), Jasbir Singh (over Rs 60 lakh), Dilsher Singh (Rs 36 lakh), Sukhraj Singh (Rs 33.77 lakh), Sukhbir Singh Samma (over Rs 34 lakh), Chamkaur Singh (Over Rs 46 lakh) and Balkar Singh (Rs 19 lakh).
