Bhubaneswar: In a major breakthrough, the Quick Action Team (QAT) of the Commissionerate police arrested a drug dealer and seized 21 grams of brown sugar from his possession near Salia Sahi slum here.
According to sources, officials of QAT raided a place near the slum and arrested a youth and found 21 grams of brown sugar and a bike from his possession.
Salia Sahi and Haliadipadia slums have been the hubs of drug business in Bhubaneswar while some women too were operating the trade. Since this trade is very profitable, a major population of the slums does this business.
Sources said brown sugar is smuggled to Bhubaneswar from Kolkata and Jaleswar by train. The peddlers are targeting students.
