A team of Fatehgarh Sahib police raided the house of Sarabjit on the intervening night of March 26-27 at Nayagaon and claimed to have recovered 2.6 kg opium and one kg powder and packing material for drugs, a Punjab police spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said that the investigations had conclusively established the role of Punjab police Head Constable and boxer Ram Singh and others in procuring heroin.

The Fatehgarh Sahib police sent a report on this to the Commandant, 2nd Commando Battalion, which is the parent unit of Head Constable Ram Singh.

Commandant Sushil Kumar ordered Ram Singh’s dismissal based on the report.

The spokesperson said the packing material is similar to what had been recovered from the house of drug haul case kingpin Jagdish Bhola on March 7.

In addition, 10 empties of AK-47 and a 12-bore gun were recovered. No licence for the gun could be produced by those present in the house of Sarabjit. 11 mobile handsets were also seized.

The spokesperson said Sarabjit was not present in his house and had been absconding. On Wednesday ,police parties of Fatehgarh Sahib and four other districts were dispatched to apprehend Sarabjit. — PTI
