Kullu: In a major catch, Kullu police arrested one person with 7.4 kilograms of cannabis (charas).

The accused had been identified as Narayan Singh (45), a resident of Chachyot, district Mandi.

The accused was arrested at late Tuesday night near Dibba Chehro in Banjar where a police team was patrolling. At that time, police saw a man carrying a bag and stopped him on suspicion. On being stopped by the police, he started to show signs of nervousness and was not able to give a satisfactory answer to the questions asked by the police.
