There is continuous supply of drugs from across the border in Punjab. Efforts are being made to break this web of drugs.

Now the security forces have caught this game of smugglers. Heroin worth Rs 55 crore has been confiscated once again on Saturday.

11 banned packets were found in a Border Security Force (BSF) search operation after receiving inputs of heroin smuggling in the Firozpur sector of the India-Pakistan border. Their weight is about 10.85 kg. The value of heroin kept in these packets is said to be around Rs 55 crore in the international market.
