Bathinda: Two men were nabbed from Bathinda as they carried 110-gram heroin which they bought from Delhi traveling on a two-wheeler. The men crossed two states in order to bring the drug in the town, but not only this they also carried fake curfew pass in order to stop people intercepting them en route way back Bathinda.
