Thrissur: Police found a bower in an acre-wide plot, which was a hideout for some locals to consume psychotropic drugs. The investigating team spotted the bower when it reached there after wading large grasses for over half a kilometer. The incident was reported from the Viyyur police station limit.
There were children inside the bower when the police reached the spot. Police seized cannabis and hashish oil from the hut. Facilities such as a cot and bed were also found inside the hut. The hut which was covered by leaves and creepers outside was protected with a tarpaulin sheet inside.
The information about the hideout of the drug users leaked when children also started to flock into this hut made by the elders. The children usually reach here before the elders arrive in the evenings and leave after their use. Police demolished the hut and set the remains on fire.
