Jeypore: Within hours of the arrest of a Maharashtra head constable smuggling ganja at a railway gate in Barpali in Bargarh district, Jeypore Town Police Saturday intercepted a car carrying marijuana worth lakhs of rupees.
On a tip-off the police intercepted one of the cars coming from Malkangiri towards Jeypore at Yole Dam Square while the other vehicle managed to flee the spot along with the consignment.
