Despite economic chaos, Pak continues to push weapons, drugs into India

Huge amount of cash were recovered on Friday in raid near LoC

Money-drugs Huge amount of cash, drug recovered from Poonch Sector

The latest ceasefire pact between Indian and Pakistani militaries that was agreed to on February 25, 2021, may still be holding but despite the ongoing economic chaos, Pakistan’s effort to push in infiltrators, funds, narcotic drugs and weapons, continues unabated.

As if to underline India’s position that Pakistan continues to be obsessed with India despite the latter’s failing economy, but at the same time, underlining India’s relentless effort to guard the Line of Control (LoC) 24/7, a security forces patrol party on Friday recovered a big amount of cash in Indian and US currency and narcotic drugs from a house in the Poonch Sector in Jammu.

On Friday, India's representative Seema Pujani at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), had said that Pakistan remains obsessed with India in an indication of the state's misplaced priorities “while its population battle for their lives, livelihood and freedom.”

“No religious minority can freely live or practice its religion in Pakistan today. The Ahmadiya community continues to be persecuted by the state for simply practising their faith… Pakistan's policies are directly responsible for the death of thousands of civilians around the world,” Pujani had said.

On the recovered money and drugs, a security establishment source said: “A patrol party noticed suspicious activity near a house in Poonch Sector and while conducting search operations found cash and narcotics from the house of Mohammad Rafique. One suitcase and three bags were found that were filled with cash.”

While the Indian currency recovered totaled Rs 2,30, 93, 570 (two crore, thirty lakh, ninety-three thousand five hundred and seventy), US dollar notes totaled 15,000 USD (about Rs 12,30,000 ).

About 7 kg of suspected narcotics were also found from the house in Dhanna Doeya (near Sathra), about 8 km away from the LoC.
