Margao police on Wednesday arrested one person, a resident of Azad Nagar, Margao, after he was found in possession of 170 grams of ganja worth Rs 52,000.
Police said that they had reliable information that the accused would come to sell ganja to a customer near ESI hospital, Margao. Based on this, the police sent a decoy customer to purchase the narcotic substance from him. The accused asked the decoy customer to show him the money first before he handed over the consignment.
While the decoy customer kept the accused busy in negotiations, the police team that laid in wait, nabbed the accused red-handed in possession of the banned narcotic substance.
