The Haryana Police Sunday arrested four students of Sonepat’s OP Jindal Global University for allegedly bringing charas from Kullu town in Himachal Pradesh to “supply” at the university. The police seized nearly 1 kg of charas, valued at nearly Rs 1.33 lakh in the international market, from them.

They were produced before a court Sunday and remanded in police custody for three days.

An FIR under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act was registered against the four at Murthal police station. University authorities were unavailable for comment.
