In May 2018, the STF (Special Task Force) arrested Rajan and Gulam Nabi from Mohali when they got the information that the two were heading towards Mohali from the Landran side to sell drugs. The STF then set up a checkpoint at Landran T- point and intercepted their car and recovered 10 kg charas packed in a bag. When interrogated, they both revealed that they buy drugs from Haryana and supply it to their customers in Mohali and adjoining cities.
The police in its charge sheet had mentioned that the accused confessed to have been involved in drug peddling from the past three years.
