A team of the Special Task Force (STF) of Mohali police arrested Pawan Kumar, a sub-inspector with the Haryana police, and two others after 1-kg drug in the form of ICE (scientific name, Crystal methamphetamine) was found in their car, on Sunday.

The drug found on the trio, in their Hyundai i20 when stopped on the Patiala-Dakala Road, is a stimulant that speeds up messages travelling between the brain and the body. The other two accused are Ajay Kumar, of Siana village near Mahendragarh and Karamjeet Singh, of Nansu village, near Patiala.

“The drug was meant for sale in Patiala and other parts of the state. We will soon find out the supply chain of the contraband,” said investigating officer of the case, ASI Ram Darshan, adding that the three had been remanded in three-day police custody.

In the recent past, the STF has booked and arrested five personnel of Punjab police, one from the Chandigarh Police and a sub-inspector of Haryana Police.
