Days after three men were arrested from Morbi with 120 kg of heroin, the Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) arrested three more accused on Wednesday from Rajasthan and Devbhumi Dwarka in Gujarat and recovered 24 kg heroin.

According to ATS officials, a team seized 24 kg of heroin from a house in Navadra village under Jamkalyanpur taluka of Devbhu-mi Dwarka and arrested one An-war Pateliya alias Anu Moosa. Two more accused, Iqbal Bhangariyo, a native of Jamnagar and Arvind Yadav, a native of Sri Ganganagar in Rajasthan, were held from Sirohi of Rajasthan.

On Sunday night, an ATS team had raided an under-construction house in Jinjuda village in Morbi and seized 120 kg heroin. Police had also arrested three accused- Mukhtar Hussein alias Jabbar Jodiya, Shamsuddin Saiyyed and Ghulam Husseinmiya Bhagad during the raid.
