The Delhi Police on Monday arrested a 27-year-old kingpin of the inter-State drug cartel for allegedly supplying narcotics substance in Delhi and its peripherals. Police have also recovered 10.5 kilogram (kg) of heroin and trailer truck used in commission of crime, from the possession of the duo.

The accused has been identified as Saidul Seikh, a resident of Malda district in West Bengal. Police said that a reward of Rs 1 lakh was also declared on information leading to Seikh's arrest.

According to Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Special Cell, last in September, a police team has arrested Baijlur Rehman (28) and Mohammad Abu Bakkar Siddique (24), both residents of Malda, with 10.5 kg of heroin being transported in a trailer truck.

"Accordingly, a case under section 21/29/61/85 Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) at Special Cell police station and during interrogation, Baijlur Rehamn and Abu Bakar confirmed that the consignment of heroin was delivered to them by Saidul Seikh at Guwahati (Assam) and the same was to be delivered in Delhi," said the DCP. 

"A police team was camped in Malda and Guwahati for making all possible efforts to apprehend the kingpin Saidul Seikh and to further establish the identity of his source of supply at Manipur, but he absconded from the town and could not be apprehended," said the DCP.

"On January 9, after receiving specific inputs, Seikh was apprehended by police team from Mujazzfarpur in Bihar," said the DCP adding that Seikh is being brought to Delhi on transit remand for sustained interrogation to reveal the complete narcotic syndicate and to identify his other associates who are still at large.
