The police have launched a hunt for the arrest of Rana, kingpin of drug peddlers, through his mobile phone. Though the accused has switched off his mobile phone number since the arrest of his two accomplices on March 7, the police were trying to trace him through his mobile phone call details.

The smugglers who were arrested by the CIA staff of Ludhiana police claimed that they too have no other information about the kingpin instead of his mobile phone number and name.

Those arrested are Amarjeet Singh alias Amardeep (30) of Samana of Patiala and Veer Chand (29) of Bajda Colony of Jodhewal. They told the police that the kingpin was in contact with them over phone. When they entered in the city they were waiting for Rana's call that was supposed to tell them about the place to deliver the contraband.

Inspector Harpal Singh Grewal, incharge of CIA staff-1, said they were trying to locate the accused, but they only have his mobile phone number and name.

The police arrested the two with 3,600 kg of poppy husk on March 7.
