Chandigarh, Feb 2: The main issue hogging the limelight in the poll-bound Punjab is drug menace. All political parties contesting the Punjab assembly elections 2017 have said that they would prioritise the war against drugs, if voted to power. However, in the border district of Taran Taran in Punjab, there still continues to be a free flow of drugs.
Drugs have been freely entering into this village. The Border Security Force which patrols this area says that there are certain conditions that have helped drug lords bring in heroine. The weather condition in the village is usually misty, and this has helped drug dealers give security forces the slip through.

New Delhi, Nov 9: The National Investigating Agency has managed to bust an inter-state racket that involves the circulation of fake currency and also smuggling of drugs. The two states in question are Punjab and West Bengal and the arrest of these operatives had led to the seizure of opium and high quality fake currency notes.
In a detailed chargesheet filed by the NIA, it is stated that Sunesh Kumar a resident of Ambala aged 50 and Rajan Chopra (25) from Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab were involved in a racket involving the circulation of both fake currency and opium.
“Drop the arms into the water. Stay still.” This was the message that the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) picked up while tracking the boat from Pakistan which was intercepted at sea earlier this week.
There were eight persons on this heroin laden boat who being handled by a set of men based out of Karachi and Thailand.
It is an indicator that the contraband was headed into the Indian waters from where it would be smuggled into Thailand and later into the European market.
Several media outlets have burnt the midnight oil to debunk the operation of the Coast Guard which intercepted The Qalandar or the boat from Pakistan.
These suspicious four who did their best to conceal evidence have been branded by a few as diesel or drug smugglers. Point number one that needs to be made here is that why would someone from Pakistan smuggle diesel at Pakistani Rupee (PKR) 86 a litre to sell it at Rs 56 here?
The second point that needs to be made here is that in every intercept pertaining to drug smuggling the men have either surrendered or sunk the material in water.
Very recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi called on the youth of India to make India drug free. While the first part of the problem can be tackled with will power, the second part of preventing the inflow of drugs into India is a huge task ahead especially for the Border Security Force.
