The Punjab police on Friday arrested three persons with possession of 500 grams of heroin from the Tarn Taran district. One of the accused identified as Jagdeep Singh alias Deep Singh is a former police constable with a height of seven feet six inches.

The police recovered Heroin from an SUV driven by Singh— who participated in the reality TV show America’s Got Talent— in the Tarn Taran district. The arrest is made by the state special operation cell of the Punjab police.

Deep Singh, who is reportedly taller than WWE wrestler Great Khali used to roam around with Punjab police sticker on his vehicle and was presented in the local court earlier today which sent him to a five-day police remand, police said.

Police said they will investigate the whole nexus involved in the drug smuggling.

Singh left his job in the police force and became a member of the Bir Khala Group. Later, the group made it to Season 14 of America’s Got Talent. The group performed a number of dangerous acts during the competition. Singh was said to be the tallest person on the show, according to a report by NDTV.

During the show, he showcased Gatka, a traditional martial art associated with Sikhs. His group made it to the quarterfinals of the competition. They returned for America’s Got Talent: All-Stars but were eliminated in the prelims, according to the English daily.

In a similar unrelated incident, two men were arrested by the Punjab police with six kilograms of heroin in Burj village on the Attari road.

The police claimed to have busted a cross-border drugs-smuggling racket operated by a US-based smuggler.

Commissioner of Police, Amritsar, Gurpreet Singh Bhullar said the accused were identified as Mohinderpal Singh of Model Town, Hoshiarpur and Sourav Sharma of Panj Pipli Chand Nagar, Hoshiarpur.

Apart from seizing the contraband, police also impounded a car used by the duo for transporting the consignment. Bhullar said police acted on reliable inputs that associates of United States-based smuggler Jasmit Singh alias Lucky have retrieved a consignment of heroin sent by Pakistan-based smugglers from across the border and are going to deliver it to someone.
