Tariq Ahmad alias "Madam", a resident of Lassana village of Surankot, was detained under the Public Safety Act (PSA) in Poonch district on Friday and sent to district jail in Rajouri, a police official said.
The PSA is an administrative detention law that allows detention without charge or trial for up to two years in some cases.
"Ahmad is a notorious drug peddler and was also involved in fake currency racket," the official said.
Three more drug peddlers were arrested along with 11 g of heroin during vehicle checking at Potha bypass in Poonch district Friday evening, he said.
