Srinagar: Police have booked three “notorious” drug smugglers under PIT NDPS Act in Baramulla, a police spokesperson informed Friday.

He said “notorious” drug smugglers — Shahid Hussain Dar, son of Ghulam Hassan of Sultanpora Pattan; Mohammad Saleem Sheikh alias Mass, son of Abdul Rashid of Malikbagh Pattan; and Nazaar Ahmad Bhatti, son of Bawar Ali, resident of Madiyan Kamalkote Uri — have been booked under PIT-NDPS Act after obtaining formal detention orders from the competent authority.

The booked drug smugglers have been detained and subsequently lodged in Central Jail Kot-Bhalwal Jammu.

Police said that many cases are registered against these drug smugglers and that they were involved in promoting “drug abuse trade” by supplying drugs to local youth of Uri, Kamalkote, Madiyan, Pattan, Sultanpora and other areas of the district.

“Despite their involvement in many FIRs, they did not mend their activities,” police said.
