Srinagar, 02 Oct 2021. Alert Indian troops deployed along LOC in Uri Sector observed some suspicious movement on 02 October 2021. Upon search of the area, two bags were recovered. The bags contained large amount of contraband like material. The scrutiny of the two bags revealed approximately 25 – 30 Kilograms of drugs like substance in packages with Pakistani markings.
The exact nature of drugs like substance is being ascertained through concerned authorities. The value of the suspected contraband is around ₹20 – 25 crores in the black market.
Legal proceedings have been initiated after the suspected recovered contraband was handed over to concerned police. Case FIR no 101 of PS Uri has been registered under relevant sections of law.
The huge drug haul along the Line of Control showcases the nefarious design of Pakistan based narco – terror nexus and its inimical intent to finance and abet terror in India. This drug bust is a huge setback to the Pakistan narco-terror nexus. This drug haul in Uri Sector comes just days after one Pakistani origin terrorist was neutralized and another, namely Ali Babar, R/o Okara, Pakistan captured alive, in an extended search operation culminating on 28 September 2021.
