Bengali girl, another person held for ganja smuggling in city

Bhubaneswar, Oct 25: Two persons, including a Bengali girl, were arrested from Pandara on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar for allegedly smuggling ganja on Tuesday. Police seized 35 kg of the contraband from their possession. 

Acting on a tip-off that the woman was smuggling contraband to Puri, the Mancheswar police laid a trap and traced Prasanta Sahoo alias Bapi (28), a resident of Pipili in Puri and Neha Haldar (26) a West Bengal resident near Pandara while they were on their way to Puri. They were caught red handed while transporting the ganja in three airbags.
Both the accused persons are now staying at Sikharchandi under the Chandrasekharpur police station.

While there were many dacoity cases pending against Prasant, the woman was also arrested a few months ago for looting people on the pretext of sex.

The trio had brought the contraband products from Koraput, sources said.

A case has been registered in this connection under Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act against the duo.
