Around 1.9 lakh banned pills and capsules, which had been stuffed in four sacks, were recovered from the car, in which the accused — Puneet Malik, 28, of Haibowal; Ajay Goyal, 41, of Chandar Nagar; and Sonu Chhabra, a chemist, who runs a shop at Jawahar Nagar Camp — were travelling in, flowing a tip-off, police said.

The accused were caught near EWS Colony on Tajpur Road while they were on their way to deliver a consignment comprising 1,77,800 banned pills and 16,080 capsules.

Assistant commissioner of police (ACP, investigation), Pawanjit, said the accused used to smuggle in intoxicants from other states and sell it among addicts.
