The police on Friday arrested two persons in possession of smuggled heroin worth Rs. 20 crore, weighing around 15 kilograms.
The arrests were made when the high grade heroin packets were being taken to Amritsar from Kashmir for selling purposes.
Along with heroin, police also seized four mobile phones from the arrested persons, who were reportedly travelling in a taxi with a Srinagar-registered number plate.
The police also established that a relative of one of the two persons nabbed had a past history of terrorist activities.
Inspector General of Police S.D. Singh said preliminary interrogation of the duo revealed that the drugs were sent from Pakistan and Karnah. Singh also said the seized drugs packets had a Pakistan marking on them.
Further details are awaited as the investigation is underway.
