Two held with 11 kg ganja
Rajpura June 10:
The Rajpura Sadar police today arrested two persons with 11 kg ganja near the Rajpura barrier on Ambala road.
The accused have been identified as Sunil Kumar and his aunt Lalsa, both residents of Bihar. Sadar SHO Bikramjeet Singh Brar said the woman was a mother of a two-year-old boy who was also with her during the arrest. The contraband was sealed in different packets of 4 to 7 kg.
The SHO said the police got a tip-off about the consignment and arrested the accused during a special naka. He said the accused admitted that they were going to deliver the consignment in Ludhiana, which was handed over to them by someone from Nepal at the border.
The accused said they were not aware of the material inside the packets and were told to deliver it at Ludhiana. Brar also said the amount of the contraband could be about Rs 2 lakh in Nepal but since not many people consume it in north India, it could be little less in this area.
A case in this connection has been registered by the police. The police is trying to establish the identity of the accused who was to collect the packets in Ludhiana.
