Youth smuggles ganja inside halwa for quarantined friend, booked
Adoor: Police registered a case against a youth who smuggled ganja inside halwa for his friend who is undergoing quarantine.
The ganja was brought to an Anayadi native who is undergoing quarantine at a government institution near the Adoor Government Boys High School. The youth, who had returned from Hyderabad, was quarantined at the centre three days ago.
The youth’s friend Vinod, a native of Anayadi Vayyankara, brought some food items for the youth and gave it to the volunteers at the centre.
On inspecting halwa kept inside the package, the volunteers felt something was stuffed inside it. Inspections revealed a small package filled with a substance that smelled like tobacco.
The volunteers alerted Adoor Circle Inspector U. Biju and based on his direction, Sub Inspector Sreejith came to the spot and checked the package and confirmed that it was ganja.
A police team led by the SI inspected the house of Vinod but he was nowhere to be found. A case has been registered and further investigation is on.
