A 58-year-old man was

arrested after 11 kg of charas (cannabis resin) was seized

from him here in Maharashtra, police said Sunday.

Acting on a tip-off, the anti-extortion cell of Thane

police laid a trap and apprehended Azimuddin Ahmed Ansari at

Kalyan town here on Saturday evening, police spokesperson

Sukhada Narkar said in a release.

A search of his bag led to the recovery of nearly 11

Ansari, a resident of Siwan district in Bihar, had

apparently got the contraband from Nepal, Narkar said.

A probe was underway to ascertain as to whom he was
