A patrol group of the Border Security Force (BSF) Bhuj seized at least 10 packets of cannabis (charas) packed in rice packets from Varaya Thar Bet off the coast of Karmatha (Jakhau Coast) in Gujarat.

The narcotics were discovered in ‘Cobra Brand Kohinoor Basmati Rice’ packets. BSF, Gujarat Police, Coast Guard, and Customs had previously seized charas packs off the coast and creek area of Jakhau.

These charas packets, discovered by the BSF and other law enforcement officials off the Gujarat coast, appear to have washed ashore from Pakistan. Since May 20, 2020, the BSF and other agencies have recovered 1,516 parcels, according to the PRO BSF Gujarat Frontier.

On the occasion of Drug Destruction Day, the activity was carried out at the Mumbai Waste Management Ltd location, according to a statement released by the Press Information Bureau (PIB).
