Beijing: China`s police on Saturday announced that over 1,300 people have been arrested as suspects involved in illegal drug sales online amid a special crackdown.

Chinese police launched a special combat, including three intensive raids, against illegal online drug sales and sales of fake drugs since June this year and to date police forces in 29 provincial-level regions have closed 140 unlicensed websites and online drug stores, Xinhua quoted the ministry of public security as saying in a statement.

Police have seized more than nine tonnes of raw materials for fake drug manufacture, the statement said.

The statement said illegal online sellers often use deceptive advertisements to lure buyers and most of the drugs were found to be made of starch or spoiled materials.

Some drugs contained illegal, psychedelic or poisonous ingredients that may harm user`s health, it said.
