Kathmandu : A team of the Armed Police Force has recovered a large quantity of cannabis and a motorcycle from Sukhipur in Siraha this morning.
Police team deployed from Armed Police Base Camp Sukhipur recovered a motorcycle with 19 kg of marijuana from Sukhipur Municipality-4 Kawilasi. Police Inspector Bidesh Raj Magar of Armed Police Base Camp Sukhipur informed that the cannabis was recovered from the motorcycle and a plastic bag. A patrol team under the command of Armed Police Deputy Inspector Magar also recovered a motorcycle (29 Pa 1487) used by the smugglers.
According to Magar, the police took immediate action and took the motorcycle and marijuana under control after a man on a motorcycle traveling from north to south absconded during a check at Baniniya Chowk.

The smugglers smuggle the cannabis collected in the northern region of Siraha and Udayapur to the southern border of India.
