The Haryana State Narcotics Control Bureau’s Gurgaon unit recently busted a drug smuggling operation that’s worth a whopping Rs 2.5 crore. Three men ended up in hot water after attempting to send the drugs to Israel using a courier service. Here’s the lowdown on the whole deal.

Back in August, ASI Sandeep, the man behind the mission, swooped down on a Udyog Vihar courier company. Inside a package destined for Ramat Gan in Tel Aviv, Israel, they discovered a stash of 512 grams of amphetamine. The drug bust went down on August 9, but it took a bit of detective work to track down the culprits.

Turns out, the three shady characters responsible for this illicit shipment are Zubair Khan and Rajeev Tripathi from Jaipur, and Ram Lal from Himachal Pradesh. Khan and Tripathi got nabbed on a Thursday, and they caught Lal on the following Friday.

The Haryana State Narcotics Control Bureau’s Gurgaon unit isn’t done yet; they’re on the lookout for more folks involved in this operation. If you stumble upon any suspicious drug activity, do your part and call their toll-free number at 90508-91508.

According to ASI Sandeep, it’s becoming quite a common gig to discover drugs in courier company packages around these parts. They were tipped off by the company staff after an X-ray scan raised suspicions about one particular box. Lo and behold, it had an Israeli address on it.

When they cracked it open, they found a bedsheet, two pillow covers, and a wristband (the kind with Rudraksha beads in the middle). Hidden inside the bedsheet was a sneaky little polythene packet, which, you guessed it, turned out to be amphetamine. The whole shebang was enough to trigger the filing of an FIR under the NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) Act Section 21C/61/85 at the Udyog Vihar police station.

And just in case you thought this was an isolated incident, in October, they stumbled upon 155 grams of opium cunningly concealed under the soles of a pair of shoes intended for the US. This little surprise was uncovered at another courier company in Udyog Vihar, Gurgaon.

A startling incident unfolded in North Delhi’s Wazirabad as a leopard ventured into a house, leaving three individuals injured, officials reported.

The victims, identified as Mahender, Akash, and Rampal, encountered the unexpected visitor. Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Manoj Meena revealed that upon receiving a distress call, the police team swiftly mobilized to Jagatpur village at Wazirabad, responding to the incident near Adarsh Nagar around 6.14 am. Forest officials were also alerted, and a collaborative effort ensued.

A team comprising seven officials from the forest department, fire department, and local police successfully contained the leopard in a room. Subsequently, the elusive feline was safely captured around 11.45 am, averting further harm.

Interestingly, this was not the first instance of a leopard’s incursion into the Jagatpur area, located adjacent to the Wazirabad Biodiversity Park. In 2016, a similar event occurred when an adult leopard strayed into the village. Following numerous sightings reported by residents, forest department officials managed to capture the wild cat and relocate it to the Rajaji National Park in Uttarakhand.

There’s a new sneaky trick scammers are using at ATMs, and it’s pretty clever (but not in a good way). So, this lady in Delhi, Apoorva, went to withdraw some cash from an ATM in Mayur Vihar. She pops in her card, and bam, it gets stuck! Classic move, right?

Now, here’s where it gets interesting. A guy hanging around offers to help and points her to a number written on the machine. She calls it, thinking it’s the bank’s helpline. But surprise, surprise, it’s not! The person on the other end pretends to be a bank agent and tells her to follow some steps to get her card out.

Long story short, she follows the instructions, and the machine goes “Out Of Service.” Meanwhile, the scammer asks for her phone number and convinces her to leave the card in the machine. After a while, she gets a message saying Rs. 21,000 has been debited from her account. Ouch!

Here’s the deal: scammers are using a liquid to make your card stick in the machine. Then, they’ve already written down a fake helpline number for you to call. When you call, they pretend to help but actually scam you. Sneaky, right?

So, if this ever happens to you, don’t fall for it! Dial 100 and get help from the police ASAP. Stay safe out there!
