Gujarat Prime Target For Pakistan & Kashmir-Based Drug Cartels

Gujarat has become a prime target for drug cartels operating from Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir, warns the state's Narcotics// Control Bureau (NCB).

"Gujarat has always been a transit point for illegal drug consignments orginating from the infamous 'Golden Crescent' countries including Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan", said Prafulsinh Sarvaiya, Superintendent of NCB.

"The concern is because Pak-based militant outfits and underworld gangs have now become a part of this drug cartel as it is an easy source of income to fund their activities", he said.

"However, now Gujarat is not just a transit point, it has become a target for drug suppliers operating from Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir", he added.

"If we look at our seizure records in the past few years, the trend clearly points to the fact that illegal consignments of hashish and opium are making their way into Gujarat in large quantitites and are being sold in the state," Sarvaiya told PTI.

Just this year, the NCB, in four separate seizures, have made a haul of over 70 kilograms of charas most of which have orginated in Kashmir and Pakistan, he said.

There are other similar seizures made by other agencies working against the drug cartels, the official added.
