C annabis worth Rs 10 lakh seized from an oil tanker was

Malkangiri:10/8/17:The drug peddlers have resorted to inventive ploy to escape detection. With today’s seizure of nearly 200 kilo gram of cannabis from an oil tanker in Malkangiri, the devious design by the peddlers to disorient the enforcement agencies has come to the fore. Acting on a tipoff, an oil tanker was intercepted and around 200 kilo gram of cannabis worth Rs 10 lakh seized.

The contraband was found stacked inside the empty oil tank which is used to carry oil, officials of enforcement squad said. Three persons were nabbed from the spot. The contraband consignment was on its way to Chattishgarh. Therefore the arrested persons were member of an interstate cannabis racket active in Odisha, they said. The accused persons are being interrogated for further findings of their modus operandi, the officials told this web portal. Odisha, according to Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) sources, accounted for the 40 per cent of total ganja seizures across the country since past one year. The large quantity of seizure also puts Odisha on the pedestal of country’s largest ganja producing state on the national level.
