Balasore is Paradise for synthetic drug smuggler

Balasore:27/4/17:The synthetic drug is being smuggled into Balasore by several peddlers from neighbouring West Bengal which acts as an ‘entry point’ of the narcotic substance into the State. A Sting Operation by local TV channel  reveals  that dealers procure the white powder from several agents in West Bengal and smuggle into Odisha via Kharagpur and Kolkata.

The investigation reveals that, the dealers subsequently supply the smuggled brown sugar by packing it in small consignment packets ranging between Rs 20,000 to Rs 60,000 through small agents in Balasore and other parts of the State.

As per the records, Balasore police had registered only four cases and managed to nab six peddlers in the last two years.

When contacted, Balasore SP Niti Sekhar admitted lapses and subsequently assured of stern action against the drug peddlers in the district.
