Jagatsinghpur, Nov 29 (LocalWire) The Balikuda Police on Thursday said they have arrested an absconding couple on charges of ganja smuggling.
According to police, Anath Swain and his wife Parbati Swain, hailing from Machgaon, were allegedly involved in a ganja smuggling racket and used to supply the illegal cannabis to tea shop keepers, betel shop owners and people in rural areas.
The police seized huge quantities of ganja and other narcotics from their possession during a raid and registered a case against the accused couple way back in 2007.
Despite warrant issued by the court, the couple had been absconding since the last 11 years.
However, they were arrested on Thursday and presented in court.
