Palakkad: An Alappuzha native was nabbed with 5oo gm of ganja by excise special squad during a vehicle inspection at Valayar toll plaza. The culprit was identified as Preetha (29). She was travelling in a KSRTC bus.
Ganja was found hidden in a secret pocket on her shoulder bag. To prevent the smell of ganja from spreading, jasmine flowers were kept inside the bag. Preetha told officials that she had been using ganja for five years and for the last two months she was working as an agent of a ganja lobby based in Coimbatore.
It is learnt that she tries to smuggle ganja twice a day from Coimbatore to Palakkad.
