    Attari, Punjab: Border Security Force (BSF) personnel today seized 41 kg of heroin worth an estimated Rs. 205 crore along with a cache of arms and ammunition in the Amritsar sector of Punjab.

    The consignment of drug, arms and ammunition was being allegedly smuggled into India from Pakistan in two attempts, sources said.

    At about 3 AM, a BSF patrol detected suspicious movements along the border near the Rattan Khurd Border Outpost.

    On being challenged, the suspects escaped, leaving behind 40 packets of heroin, a pistol, three pistol magazines, and a mobile phone and charger of Pakistani make along with 18 rounds of ammunition, a senior officer said.

    Thereafter, at about 9:20 AM today, another BSF party picked up a consignment in the Daoke border post area in the same sector which was found to be a packet of the same contraband, the officer added.

    BSF has stepped up vigil in the border areas after special instructions were issued in view of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in the country which may likely see a spike in cases of narcotics and fake currency smuggling along the frontier.

    In the current year, BSF has seized 137.730kg (including today's haul) of drugs besides 10 automatic pistols and eight mobile phones and nine SIM cards.
