“Under CM’s Drug-free Devbhoomi mission, we identified 7 drug smugglers and confiscated their movable and immovable properties worth Rs 2.60 crore. The crackdown will continue against those indulging in such acts,” Haridwar SSP Ajay Singh told ANI on Friday.
Six of the accused are from Haridwar and one from Saharanpur, police said.

On Thursday, Uttarakhand CM called on people in the state to come forward to help the government in its pledge to make the state drug-free by 2025.
