3 people have been arrested from Mullatalai choraha. These 3 include a mother-son duo.
As per reports, the 3 were in a Fortuner car and were in possession of 2.25 kgs of opium. The worth of the opium is 3.50 lakh rupees. The woman and her son hail from Chittorgarh area and the 3rd person hails from Semari.
The Fortuner was spotted during a blockade at Mullatalai choraha. The vehicle speeded up and tried to take a reverse after spotting police at the road and this made the police suspicious. The police teams followed the vehicle and finally stopped it at some distance. Upon searching the vehicle, they found opium in it which was being illegally taken somewhere.
The interrogations revealed that the passengers assumed that they would not be suspected since they had a lady in the car with them. Investigations are being done to find the details as to from where the opium was brought and where it was being carried to.
