Police officer’s name coming serious in IED case
Police officer used to help smugglers
A case of complicity of a police officer with IED and heroin smugglers came to light in the India-Pakistan border area. The case is related to the IEDs dropped by Pakistan drones at different places in 2022 and the bomb blasts in the court premises of Ludhiana, Punjab on 24 December 2021. The Special Task Force caught some smugglers in the case of importing IED and heroin in India. The agency’s investigation has uncovered the name of a police officer named Narinder Singh, who helped him with the smugglers. The investigation also revealed that the police officer had also taken a hefty amount to save the smugglers from action. The linking of the name of the police officer with the smugglers is a matter of grave concern for the state government and the department. If seen, this matter is very sensitive. Because any kind of negligence in the matter related to the security of the country is dangerous. The police officer whose name has surfaced was posted in the area of Amritsar itself. Most of this area is very close to the border of Pakistan. Such cases keep coming before the agencies from time to time. From which it is known that some suspicious people keep helping smugglers and people involved in criminal activities in the border areas. The role of the police officer in the IED case should alert the security agencies.
Police officer Narinder Singh has been suspended, according to the Amritsar Police High Officer. A departmental inquiry has been started against police officer Narinder Singh. Apart from this, the IED and the amount given by the heroin smugglers have also been recovered from the official house of police officer Narinder Singh. The police department needs to carry out a special operation to stop the suspicious activities going on in the India-Pakistan border areas. At the same time, the state government will have to put in place a system that can identify police officers and employees collaborating with smugglers and people involved in criminal activities. Strictest action will have to be taken against the guilty police officers and employees involved in the connivance of the smugglers. It is essential to prevent criminal activities along with the security of the country. The higher police officers should deploy honest and tough officers in the areas close to the India-Pakistan border. Nowadays, there are reports of drop of weapons and narcotics by Pakistan drones in the border areas. Pakistani smugglers continue to carry out such criminal activities every day, which is a great threat to the security of the country.
