Punjab: In a significant drug bust, the Punjab Police apprehended four drug traffickers and seized a total of 77 kg of heroin from them in two separate intelligence-led operations conducted by the Counter Intelligence Wing, Ferozepur.

Punjab Director General of Police, Gaurav Yadav, announced the successful operation on Twitter, stating that these drug smuggling modules posed a serious threat to the state and that the police are committed to making Punjab a drug-free region, in line with the vision of Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann.
