Police on Monday arrested two persons for possessing five kilograms of hashish from Kohalpur in Banke district.
Police held Narendra Raj Gharti, 26, and Dhan Bahadur Budha, 29, of Bheri Municipality in Jajarkot district, according to Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ramesh Bahadur Singh of Area Police Office, Kohalpur. DSP Singh added that further action has been initiated against the two.
The authorities fear that Kohalpur is becoming an infamous transit point for smuggling of banned narcotics in the recent times. Last week, police personnel held three persons with 30.5 kilograms of hashish from Kohalpur, Banke.
