Preventive detention of hard-core drug smugglers in Haryana under PITNDPS Act
The detenues have been detained in pursuance of this Act for at least one year. This has helped the local police to target the main operators such as organizers, financers, kingpins etc who themselves do not directly engage in the illicit trafficking of drugs, but operate secretly. Most often, local police is able to catch only drug peddlers, while the kingpins who finance and organise the drug trade often go scot-free due to lack of evidence against them.
