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

kg of charas, worth around Rs 22 lakh, she said.

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

planning to sell the contraband, she said, adding that the

accused was booked under relevant provisions of the Narcotic

Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.
