Kozhikode: A Mangalapuram native was nabbed by Excise team for possession of 10 kg ganja from Kozhikode. In a combined operation, Excise Intelligence and Excise Squad took Ansar (28) into custody on Tuesday afternoon from Link Road near Kozhikode railway station.
Ansar smuggled the drug from Bengaluru to Kozhikode on a train. Excise nabbed him when he was walking on the Link Road after alighting from the train.
Ansar was netted in an operation based on a tip-off received by Excise Intelligence. Excise also got the information about the receiver of the ganja he brought. It is expected more information about ganja sellers in Kozhikode could be gathered from him.
