The Special Investigation Agency (SIA) has apprehended two individuals, including a selection grade constable Saif-ud-din from Jammu and former sarpanch Farooq Ahmad Jungal of Uri, in connection with a cross-border narcotic syndicate involved in terror funding. The arrests bring the total number of accused in the case to 17. The SIA uncovered the syndicate during an investigation into a hawala case involving former minister Jatinder Singh, alias “Babu Singh.” The arrested politician was linked to hawala money, leading to the initial probe. The SIA had previously filed a charge sheet against 12 individuals, with nine in jail and three absconders in Pakistan. The recent arrests aim to dismantle the narcotics supply ecosystem supporting anti-national activities. The policeman had previously faced charges under the NDPS Act for heroin possession. Investigations continue to unravel the syndicate’s modus operandi, emphasizing its role in funding activities with potential ties to Pakistan’s ISI. The case originated from specific information, indicating links to ISI and agents directing funding for separatist activities in Jammu.
