Delhi Witnesses 122 Per Cent Increase In Marijuana Recovery

Updated on 7 September, 2017 at 2:32 pm By

Marijuana trade is running rampant in Delhi. The capital witnessed 122 per cent increase in the recovery of the drug this year compared to the average of the past three years, reports Huffington Post.

According to Delhi Police, around 3,350 kg of marijuana had been recovered till August 31 this year. This is the highest recovery for any year in their records.

In 2014, around 1,780 kg of marijuana was recovered in the entire year. In 2013, more than 3,100 kg of marijuana was seized – the second highest recovery.

What is the reason behind this steep increase in recovery of marijuana?

Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav said:

“We have a dedicated team for tracking narcotics traffickers. The high recovery rate reflects ceaseless and sincere efforts by the team.”



 

Two drug dealers arrested last year had connections with Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh-based rackets, and were largely selling drugs to students in and around the Delhi University campus, said an official.

So is Delhi becoming the biggest hub of marijuana? The national capital is a thriving market in itself for rackets dealing in marijuana, said an official.

He added:

“Bareilly in western UP and neighbouring districts like Badaun, Shahjahanpur and Moradabad have emerged as major sources for marijuana in Delhi.”

Apart from this, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh-based marijuana syndicates, Murshidabad district in West Bengal and several Maoist-affected regions in Odisha are among other sources of marijuana in Delhi.
