SRINAGAR (KIMS) — While continuing its stringent action against drug peddlers, the Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday attached an immovable property of a notorious drug peddler in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district.

The Jammu and Kashmir Police attached property comprising an under construction house on 4 marlas of land bearing survey No. 220 of Aijaz Ahmad Ganie, son of late Ghulam Ahmad Ganie, a resident of Gadihama, Kulgam under section 68-F (2) of NDPS Act 1985.

The said drug peddler was involved in Case FIR Number 184/2020 and FIR Number 83/2022 of Police Station Kulgam.

“The property was identified as illegally acquired property during the course of investigation/enquiry conducted by Kulgam Police. The property was prima facie acquired from illicit trafficking of narcotic drug and psychotropic substances by the owner,” the Jammu and Kashmir Police said in a statement.

“This action reaffirms the commitment of Police to combat the drug menace. Local people of the area have hailed the initiative of Police with regard to the attachment of immoveable property, which has been raised/used from illicit trafficking of narcotics by the drug peddler,” the statement said.

Earlier this month, the Jammu and Kashmir Police had attached immovable property of two notorious drug peddlers at Khudwani and Buchroo areas of the district. — (KIMS)
