Patna: The Economic Offence Wing (EOW) has seized 5.37 quintals of ganja from a truck and arrested three persons from NH-30 on Patna-Fatuha Road in Bihar`s Patna district, an official said today.
Acting on a tip off, the EOW sleuths intercepted a truck on Patna-Fatuha Road last night and seized the consigment of contraband stacked underneath the vehicle`s cabin, the EOW Inspector General of Police (IG) Praveen Vashistha said.
Three smugglers, identified as Pramod Paswan, a native of Samastiput district, Balraj Singh alias Bantu and Indrajit Singh alias Sab (Ludhiana, Punjab) have been arrested for possession of ganja, he said.
