Three drug peddlers get 14-year jail

Our Correspondent

Fazilka, December 6

Additional District and Sessions Judge Lachhman Singh awarded 14 years of imprisonment to each of the three drug peddlers, including a woman, today in a four-year-old drug smuggling case.

Lachhman Singh has awarded 14-year sentence and Rs 1.25 lakh fine to each of the convict, namely Jasbir Singh, Surinder Kumar and Ramandeep Kaur. In case the convict is not able to pay the fine he/she will have to undergo imprisonment of another one year.

The Abohar police had arrested the drug peddlers carrying 4-kg intoxicant powder containing “dephenoxylate hydrochloride” salt on the Killianwali bypass, near Abohar, on November 15, 2013.

However, the fourth accused Gurtej Singh, husband of convict Ramandeep Kaur, who had managed to flee while taking advantage of darkness, has been let go by the court by giving the benefit of doubt as the police could not prove his identity.
