The millennium city is apparently witnessing a rise in illegal trade of marijuana with the police having seized 60 kg of the banned substance worth around Rs 80 lakh in March.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Rajbir Deshwal said: “We have registered 19 FIRs linked to the trade and transportation of contraband. Of this, 17 are linked to marijuana export.”


Deshwal said curbing illegal trade and smuggling of the contraband, also called ganja, was a challenge.

“We have issued strict directions to heads of police stations, police posts, the crime branch and intelligence units to keep a close watch on the suspects,” he said.
