The accused are identified as Athar Saeed, Amritpal Singh, Avtar Singh, Harwinder Singh, Tahseem, Deepak Khurana, and Ahmad Farid.

In April 2022, the Indian Customs Department seized a total of 102.784 kilograms of heroin, hidden in a consignment of licorice roots (Mulethi), at the Integrated Check Posts in Amritsar's Attari. The haul, valued at approximately Rs 700 crores, was intercepted in two separate instalments.
