Accordingly Noor had received the parcel  and out of curiosity had opened it before he travelled for Gulf.   He grew suspicious and  cut  open a peda only to find a pill like  substance inside. He cleverly removed all the suspicious substance and had packed the peda and handed it over to his friend in the Gulf who  in turn had reprimanded Noor. Meanwhile, Noor’s brother back at home had verified it was an intoxicant  and subsequently the person who gave the parcel was also reportedly unidentified.  This issue has gone viral on social sites.
