The operation led to the confiscation of a substantial consignment of 8 quintals of Cannabis, valued at over Rs 1.25 crore.

The intercepted Cannabis shipment was traced from Odisha to Haryana, and the police acted swiftly to apprehend the culprits. The arrest occurred during a routine check near Gauri Jawaharnagar’s turn when a truck with the registration number RJ 40 GA 5843 was flagged down by the authorities.
