Kasargod, Sep 12, 2015 : Police have arrested a resident of Nellikatte Kayarkochi on the charges of hiding packets of ganja amid fruits with an intention of smuggling it to Qatar through a passenger who was heading to the Gulf nation.
The arrested person is Abdul Naushad (36). He was arrested on the basis of the complaint filed by Haneef of Nellikatte Chennadka. On September 9, Naushad on coming to know that Haneef was leaving for Qatar handed him a parcel of fruits with a request to pass it on to a friend in Qatar.
Haneef who agreed, took it home. When he eventually did not find space for the parcel in his baggage, he decided to open it and keep it separately in his baggage. Amid the fruits he found an old pair of shorts and found ganja packets in the pockets of the shorts.
Realising that Naushad had planned to cheat him, Haneef approached the police who arrested Naushad. It is learnt, during interrogation he revealed that the ganja packets were for one of his friends who is in Qatar.
