Ten inter-state smugglers were arrested after 427 kg of cannabis worth around Rs 17 lakh was seized from them in Odisha's Kalahandi district, police said on Saturday.

Acting on a tip-off, police intercepted a pickup truck at Jaipatna on Friday. The vehicle was being escorted by people riding an SUV and a motorcycle, an officer said.

The narcotics were being transported from Andhra Pradesh to Koksara in the district, Dharamgarh sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) Dhiraj Chopdar said.

Ten people were arrested and Rs 11,560 in cash was also recovered, the SDPO said, adding that a case had been lodged under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.
