In a significant breakthrough in the fight against drug trafficking, the Baramulla Police have intensified their crackdown across the district, leading to substantial seizures, arrests, and the attachment of properties owned by notorious drug peddlers.

In the latest development today, Baramulla Police successfully attached a single-storied residential house valued at approximately Rs. 15.00 lakhs. The property belongs to Afroza Begum, alias Affri, wife of Fayaz Ahmad Dar, a notorious drug peddler currently residing in Ganie Hamam at Trumgund Hygam Sopore, District Baramulla. This action was taken under sections 68-E read with 68-F (1) of the NDPS Act of 1985.

This move follows the arrest of two drug peddlers in Tapper Bala Kreeri a day ago, during which 168 capsules of Spasmo Proxyvon Plus and 12 syrups of Codeine Phosphate psychotropic substances were seized, along with the impounding of a vehicle.

Earlier on February 28th, Baramulla Police apprehended two drug peddlers at Drangbal Crossing and Diver Pattan, Baramulla, recovering 230 grams of contraband Charas-like substances.
