15 Kgs of Ganja seized under NDPS Act at Mayabunder




Mayabunder, Oct 30: In probably one of the biggest catches of recent times, the North & Middle Andaman district police seized around 15 kg of ganja on 25th October.
There were inputs that some of the shipments being carried in the containers of passenger ships are carrying the contraband substance. Based on that a police team was deployed on jetty since the last passenger ship Swaraj Dweep arrived at Mayabunder and each and every package was being checked as and when the containers opened. This led to a huge success on Friday when, the police team headed by Shri Hukma Ram (SDPO Diglipur) and consisting of SI Somen Halder, SI Anbeshwaran and other police station staff came across a person who was trying to avoid the checking of packages and his name is Mr. Ashok  Biswas (54) yrs. Resident of Subashgram, Diglipur. When he was made to open the packages, it was found that there was around 15 kg of ganja in that. Legal proceedings have been started in matter and further investigation has been taken up.
SP North & Middle Andaman Shri Vichitra Veer, IPS said that any information that such a huge recovery just before Diwali would demoralise the anti-social elements. He further said that any information received from the public with regards to transportation of ganja is duly verified and such information leading to recovery is a good sign. It would lead to better trust between police and public, a press release said.
