Huge seizure of heroin from Pak border: Red Cross to honour BSF officer and his team
Chandigarh: The Red Cross Integrated Centre for rehabilitation of Addicts, in collaboration with Lions Club, Kahnuwan Muskan in Punjab, will be honouring Border Security Force DIG Rajesh Sharma and his team of BSF personnel for one of the largest seizure of contraband heroin and thwarting an intrusion bid by smugglers from the Pakistan side.
The BSF team led by DIG Rajesh Sharma, recently succeeded in capturing 55 kg of heroin (55 packets each weighing a kg) from the Rosse outpost. This is the largest haul of contraband narcotic substance from the border by the BSF this year.
The Red Cross has said in a letter: “Ever since the BSF DIG Rajesh Sharma has joined the border district, the BSF personnel are achieving a new height by capturing large consignments of heroin. If these are sold in the area, it would destroyed the lives of hundreds of youth who are falling prey to this deadly addiction.”
