The police arrested three Indian nationals with contraband hashish weighing 360 kilograms from Gajuri of Dhading district this morning. A team from the Narcotics Control Bureau of Nepal Police arrested the Indian nationals during a security check.
The illegal drug was being supplied from Kathmandu to India via an Indian number plate lorry (S R 55 M 9484), said Inspector Nawaraj Dhungel. A false ceiling was created to hide the contraband kept in sacks.
The arrestees have been identified as Om Prakash of Manipuri district, and the vehicle driver, Gulaf Khan of Motihari district. The identity of another arrestee is yet to be ascertained.
A case will be filed against the arrestees, said Dhungel.
