In a large-scale operation aimed at curbing the ongoing drug menace, Punjab Police on Thursday raided several 'safe havens' of prominent drug smugglers currently out on bail.

Directed by DGP Gaurav Yadav, the operation targeted those caught with over 2 kg of contraband. Special DGP Arpit Shukla revealed that 246 of the 356 identified 'big fish' are out on bail and have resumed their illegal activities in the last five years.

Enlisting over 1,200 personnel across 113 police teams, the raids led to the discovery of incriminating materials, including mobile phones. These findings are under further examination to disrupt and dismantle the drug nexus in the state.
