A notorious drug peddler was today arrested under the Public Safety Act in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, police said.
Mohd. Shakoor, of Dhandidhar, was arrested and has been sent to the central jail, Kot Bhalwal, a police officer said.
Shakoor allegedly engaged in organised illicit traffic of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, the officer said.
"The scale of his involvement in drug peddling and other criminal activities can be gauged from the fact that seven cases have been registered against him in Rajouri and Jammu districts," the officer added.
