ISLAMABAD: The capital police arrested four persons including two drug peddlers from different parts of the city, and recovered narcotics, liquor and weapons from them, a police spokesman said on Wednesday. According to the details, the Golra police foiled an attempt of smuggling narcotics and recovered three kilograms of hashish from a person who was trying to transport the consignment from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) to Punjab. Similarly, the Tarnol police, in response to a tip off, recovered 1.1 kilograms of hashish from a drug peddler as he tried to smuggle it from KPK to Punjab, which led to his arrest. The Ramana police also arrested a bootlegger after confiscating two bottles of wine from his possession.
The Kohsar police intercepted a man on suspicion at a checkpoint and subsequently recovered a 30-bore pistol along with eight bullets from him, leading to his arrest.
Separate cases have been registered against them and further investigations are in progress. During October, the capital police impounded 147 four wheelers and 729 motorcycles over suspicion of their ownership.
During verification, 10 four–wheelers and 16 motorcycles were found stolen and their engine and chassis numbers tampered with. Separate cases had been registered against the owners of the vehicles.
Furthermore, 125 vehicles were spotted with tinted glasses, which were later removed as their use is illegal. The police also arrested 15 suspects for allegedly carrying weapons and drugs.
