Pakistan sponsored Narco terror module busted twice in one week in Kashmir: Indian Army
Srinagar/UNI: The Army on Friday said that security forces have busted two Pakistani sponsored Narco terror modules in the last one week in the border district of Kupwara in north Kashmir.
“Pakistan sponsored terror module busted twice in past one week. #IndianArmy, @BSF_India along with @JmuKmrPolice foiled Narco smuggling attempt in forward areas of Tangdhar sector on 13 Apr 21 & recovered 10kg Narco worth ₹ 50 crores,” the official twitter handle of Srinagar-based Chinar Corps wrote on Friday.
An Army spokesperson said that alert security forces guarding the Line of Control (LoC) foiled an infiltration and narco smuggling attempt when they recovered 10 kg of narco estimated to be approximately Rs 50 crore on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, he said a 10 KG Heroin consignment was recovered from the same general area a week ago in a joint operation. “Narco terrorism has been Pakistan’s long espoused model to culturally degrade the social fabric of the border areas of Kashmir and Punjab,” the Army had said in a statement issued here on Wednesday.
This attempt of Pakistan to support smugglers with armed terrorists has exposed the nexus, he had said, adding Pak handlers controlling the nexus, get money in lieu of Narco supplied which is in turn used to fund terror organisations operating in Pak & Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
He had said the modus operandi involves pushing the handlers and smugglers across the borders with an aim to exchange the drugs in lieu of money to support the militant organizations.
“Parents and Civil Society in the past have been urged to play their role in strengthening their fight to combat the menace for the larger benefit of society.
Pak’s nefarious designs have not only affected youth of J&K but also those in PoK who are actively involved in Narco consumption & smuggling,” he had said.
