Shopian, Jan 06: The district administration Shopian while continuing its “war against drug trafficking” on Friday issued notices to four more persons involved in illicit drug trafficking.
These drug traffickers, as per notices issued, have been involved in the illicit trade of drugs with the motive of taking illegal proceeds. They have made investments in acquiring movable and immovable properties from the illegal proceeds from the drug trade, an official said.
Taking cognizance of their illegal activities, Additional District Magistrate Shopian issued notices for declaring sources of their movable and immovable properties under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotic Substances Act, 1985, the official said, adding, “The accused have been asked to attend the ADM office within 30 days. Out of these 4 persons, two belong to Zainapora tehsil and one each from Chitragam and Barbugh.”
They have been further asked to produce documents indicating the source of income, earnings or assets by means of which they have acquired properties and show why acquired properties may not be declared illegal and seized as per the provisions of the NDPS Act. A few days ago, similar notices were issued to five persons, four belonging to Shopian and one to Hermain tehsils.
