In a breakthrough, Mussoorie police arrested two charas smugglers, both temporary employees at the prestigious Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) at Zero Point on Mussoorie-Kempty Road on Tuesday night.

Working on a tip off, the police recovered 166 grams of charas being carried by the duo, Bhawana Kainthola SHO Mussoorie told eNewsDesk. Further questioning she said is likely to give out more details.

Mussoorie’s SI Keshvanand Purohit said that during a checking done by constables Surendra and Mukesh at Mussoorie-Kempty Road, two men, Vinay and Dev Singh,with the latter being involved in charas smuggling for a while, and has been working at the Lal Bahadur Shastri Academy, were brought to Mussoorie kotwali. The two are being interrogated about charas smuggling so that other people involved can be brought to book. He said that working on the commitment made by senior superintendent police against drug use, main checkposts are being monitored closely. The initiative was successful and it is speculated that other names behind drug smuggling will be behind the bars soon.

With this incident, questions on LBSNAA’s security network are being raised yet again as to how people who are involved in illegal activities are being employed by it. It needs to be noted one of the smugglers, Dev Singh had earlier been named during the controversial fake IAS racket of Ruby Chaudhary.

The accused told the Police that he had bought the drug for personal use whereas Vinay claimed he had no idea that Singh was carrying drugs on him and he has simply gone with him for a break to Lakhamandal.
