Drug peddler held in J&K’s Poonch

Jammu, Feb 26 (PTI) A suspected drug peddler was arrested in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Wednesday after a year-long hunt, police said.

Ghulam Mohammad was booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act last year, but was evading arrest, Senior Superintendent of Police Ramesh Angral said.

Acting on a tip-off, he was arrested by a special team from Surankote and will be produced before a court, the officer added.
