Two Arrested in Attempt to Send Ganja to Dubai
Kasaragod: The Kerala anti-narcotic cell, on receipt of a reliable tip-off, intercepted a car here and seized 3.5 kgs of ganja intended to be smuggled out to Dubai.
The operation took place at the Chandragiri junction in Kasaragod on Monday around 6-30 pm. Principal sub-inspector Ranjit Ravindran and Vidyanagar sub-inspector Ajit Kumar and their team detected the contraband being taken to Mangaluru airport.
Ummer Farooq, scheduled to fly by the JetAir flight to Dubai at 11-30 pm, had planned to carry it with him. He is said to have escaped when the police stopped the car, leaving behind the ganja packet and his two associates, B H Aziz (29) of Talekunnu, Bedadka, and Ibrahim Khalil (29) of Anas Manzil in Bekal.
They were arrested as they were about to buy a ticket from a travel agency here. The car and ganja have been seized, while a search is on for Ummer Farooq.
