Jammu: Three suspected drug peddlers were arrested following the recovery of charas and intoxicant tablets from their possession in two separate places in Jammu and Kashmir, police said Sunday.
Ramesh Kumar Rahul and his cousin brother Anil Kumar were arrested after police recovered charas from their possession during a vehicle checking near village Sulla in Reasi district on Saturday night, a police spokesman said.
A police party asked Rahul to stop his speeding car for checking but he claimed to be a mediaperson to influence the policemen to allow the vehicle to pass the check point, he said.
However, the police party intercepted the vehicle and found the narcotics concealed between a co-passenger’s legs, he added.
Another drug peddler, Ramesh Kumar, was arrested with 110 intoxicant tablets at Kalyana Morh in Arnia area in the outskirts of Jammu on Saturday evening, the spokesman said.
A case has been registered against the three under Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, he said. (PTI)
