Srinagar: Police have booked two “notorious” drug peddlers under PIT-NDPS Act in Awantipora after obtaining formal detention orders from the competent authority, officials informed Sunday.

The two drug peddlers identified as Shabir Ahmad Parray, son of Mohammad Kamal Parray of Katipora Chersoo, and Manzoor Ahmad Bhat son of Ghulam Ahmad, also a resident of Chersoo, have been booked under PIT-NDPS Act after obtaining formal detention orders from the competent authority and subsequently lodged in Central Jail Kot-Balwal Jammu, police spokesperson said.

He said many cases were registered against these drug peddlers and they were involved in promoting drug trade by supplying drugs to local youth of Awantipora and other areas. Despite their involvement in many FIRs, they did not mend their activities and were again involved in promoting drug abuse by supplying drugs to local youth.
