Srinagar: Authorities in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir have detained over 20 drivers and their trucks carrying goods from this side to demand release of their truck and driver detained by Jammu and Kashmir Police for allegedly carrying narcotics worth Rs 100 crore.  

The incident took place last night following the detention of the truck coming from PoK as part of the cross-LoC trade after around 100 kg brown sugar was seized from it at Salamabad trade facilitation centre in Uri.  

“The PoK authorities have detained more than 20 trucks and the drivers demanding the release of the driver and the vehicle from that side which was used for smuggling drugs,” Deputy Commissioner of Baramulla G A Khwaja told PTI.  

He said the law of the land will take its course in respect of the driver and the vehicle detained in connection with the recovery of brown sugar.
