KOLLAM: Two Excise officers were injured when an alleged ganja peddler bit them at the Shakthikulangara fishing harbour complex in the city Sunday morning. The peddler, identified as Sajeevan, 49, was later overpowered and arrested. About 100 small packets of ganja and Rs 2,600 in cash, allegedly earned from peddling, were seized from him.

In his attempt to escape, the peddler bit Excise Circle Inspector J Thajudeenkutty’s thumb and attacked Circle Inspector Krishna Kumar. Both had to seek medical treatment.

Thajudeenkutty said that it was following a complaint from the father of a drug addict that the harbour area was put under surveillance by Excise sleuths.

The complainant informed that his son was sourcing ganja from someone based at the harbour area. After identifying the suspect, Thajudeenkutty and Krishna Kumar approached the suspect incognito as other officers in uniform remained some distance away. The latter attacked them when they suddenly frisked him.

The ganja was found kept tucked in the dhoti he was wearing. The officers said Sajeevan never used a mobile phone. Instead a white dhoti and white shirt with vermilion on the forehead was his green signal to clients. He will be produced at the court here on Monday.
