The Assam police seem to have killed two birds with one stone.
The Assam police, who have been extensively using social media platforms like Twitter of late, have been busting crime as well as popularising its image among the people.
“Anyone lost a huge (590 kgs) amount of Cannabis/Ganja and a truck in and around Chagolia Checkpoint last night?
Don’t panic, we found it.
Please get in touch with @Dhubri_Police. They will help you out, for sure,” says a witty tweet of Assam police on Tuesday, which has gone viral on the social media.
The Assam police are on the lookout for the owner of a huge consignment of ganja which was recovered recently in Dhubri district of Assam. The police had recovered the huge consignment of the contraband near Chagolia Checkpoint on Monday night.
Police said that the ganja consignment weighed 590 kg.
“The consignment of 590 kilograms of ganja was being smuggled to Uttar Pradesh from Agartala in Tripura,” officer-in-charge of Chagolia police outpost, Bidhan Singh Basumatary said.
He said that police had specific information about the consignment, which was bound for Uttar Pradesh via Bengal and Bihar.
“A team posted at Chagolia Interstate border of Dhubri district was informed to recover the contraband, worth over rupees several lakhs,” he said adding that the truck bearing No UP-65-TC-5820 coming from Guwahati.
