Chandigarh, Feb 16 (IANS) The drug trail exposed with the arrest of gangster Sukhpreet Singh, alias Budha, have traced links of other two arrested gangsters to a nexus of the big fish with links in Pakistan, Punjab Police said on Sunday.

Gangsters Jagdeep Singh and Gurvinder Singh were arrested three days back.

Pakistan SIM cards have been recovered from them, a police spokesperson said.

Investigations have revealed the duo, who had been absconding since 2014-15, had received a large quantity of heroin and fake Indian currency from Pakistan.

They were wanted by the Directorate Revenue Intelligence, Rajasthan Police and Punjab Police in cases related to receiving huge consignments of heroin from Pakistan.

Jagdeep had been involved in cross-border smuggling of heroin since 2008, when he first started using Pakistan SIM cards too.

He came in contact with Gurvinder the same year, and later connected with Abad Ali, alias Baadi, of Pakistan.
