The Anti Narcotics Cell (ANC) of the Mumbai Police on Tuesday arrested two persons with “Afghani charas”, believed to be sourced from Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh. The police said that the seized contraband was worth over Rs 1 crore.
The police are now questioning the accused to find out who else was involved in the drug network.
An officer from the Bandra unit of ANC said that following a tip-off, they detained two persons from the Gamdevi Dongar area of Andheri West with the narcotics on Tuesday. The duo, both in their twenties, were frisked and the police found 2.05 kg of charas worth Rs 1 crore on them.
