Ludhiana (Punjab) [India], July 8 (ANI): Two sisters were arrested by the Special Task Force (STF) in Ludhiana on Wednesday in an alleged drug smuggling case. Police said the duo had 1.2 kilograms of heroin when they were caught.
The two women have been identified as 37-year-old Kiran and Suman, who is 45.
A preliminary investigation into their backgrounds revealed that both their husbands are currently lodged in a jail for offenses committed under narcotics act.
The police received a tip-off about the two women, following which they were arrested.
