THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The mounting surveillance against ganja trade achieved a major breakthrough with the city police apprehending a Tamil Nadu native with possession of 16 kg of ganja in the city. The development comes in the midst of a heightened vigil that has been imposed across the region in anticipation of a spike in illegal trade of the contraband in the run-up to the Onam festive season.

A team of the city shadow police apprehended Andiswamy, 45, of Keeripatti in Usilampatti, Madurai, from Peroorkada during an alleged attempt to supply the large quantity of the contraband to wholesale dealers who operate in the city. He was subsequently placed under arrest by the Peroorkada police.

City police commissioner G. Sparjan Kumar said that the stringent measures initiated in reigning in drug trade at a time when school and college students have become the primary targets of such rackets have resulted in the seizure of around 70 kg of ganja this year.

Of late, the police have identified a growing interest towards LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) blotters among youngsters. Three college students had been arrested with 100 LSD ‘stamps’, synthetic psychedelic drugs that were allegedly smuggled from Bengaluru to be sold at rave parties.
