“Those arrested were in contact with their Pakistani managers. 21 kg of heroin, an Indian currency worth Rs 1.34 crore, was seized,” said police superintendent Handwara GV Sundeep Chakravarthy.

“The three have been identified. The main accused is Iftikhar Indrabi, a notorious drug trafficker who has several FIR registered against him. The second man is his son-in-law Momin Peer and the third is Iqbal-ul-Islam. More arrests are going take place in this module, “he added.

Other members of the counter-terrorism module have also been identified and efforts are underway to arrest them.

The senior police officer said that “the three were trafficking drugs to help financially the terrorists from Lashkar-e-Taiba in Jammu and Kashmir. It is a very big hawala racket where money is transferred without movement money and funded for terrorist activities. “
