The youth, identified as Inayat Hasan (22), is a native of Islamabad in Jammu and Kashmir. He has been booked under NDPS Act, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav said.
“On Monday, the police received a tip off that three persons, identified as Inayat, Khurshid and Ghulam Hasan, all natives of Kashmir, were preparing to dispatch a hashish consignment to Ajmer, following which a trap was laid near central Delhi’s Shanti Van area,” Yadav said.
However, the police could only arrest Inayat and around 2 kg fine quality hashish was recovered from his possession, media reports reaching here said this evening.
During interrogation, Inayat told the police that he used to work as a part time carpenter and jeep driver during tourist seasons. He came into contact with one Ashraf, a local of Islamabad, who was already selling hashish at Delhi and Rajasthan, police said.
Inayat wanted to earn quick money and claimed that it was Ashraf who roped him into the network, police added.
