The Navy recovered 153.7kg of Kerala Cannabis found floating off the coast of Kankesanthurai on Wednesday (11).

As they had previously suspected that the contraband would be smuggled to Velvatithurai on Tuesday (10), the Navy patrolled the area with a Fast Attack Craft (P465). Subsequently, they made the discovery of 44 parcels of cannabis concealed in three polythene bags.

It is believed that the smugglers threw the bags overboard as they were aware of naval presence and as their landing point was guarded.

The Northern Naval Command has recovered a total of 1,639.93kgs of Kerala Cannabis since January 2015.
