Chennai, Feb 25 (BPNS)

The  Tamil Nadu police have directed courier companies across the state to get no-drug certification from customers before accepting the couriers to be delivered. This was following several instances of drugs being transferred through couriers either laced in Chocolate, or as in the form of powders and other means.

The courier companies have to get a declaration from the customers on the content that is included in the parcel and maintain a proper record of the same.

The police have also directed the courier companies to get full details including phone number, aadhar card number, and other personal details of the customer who is sending the parcel. More than this a written declaration is required on the contents that were being transported.

The sale of ganja chocolates is on the rise in Tamil Nadu and in the last two months, 310 kg of ganja chocolates were seized from the Coimbatore district alone.

Police have been conducting a major crackdown in all the railway stations to prevent the migrant workers from smuggling in ganja and other drugs to the state once they are coming back from home.  Ever since the police commenced an extensive search and raids at the railway stations, the smuggling of drugs through railway stations has already come down drastically even though not been fully eradicated.

The Tamil Nadu police have inflicted major crackdowns in all major railway stations including Chennai, Madurai, Salem, Coimbatore, Erode, Jholarpet, and others stations.

Sources in the Tamil Nadu police told BPNS that even after crackdown in railway stations, the ganja-laced chocolates and other forms of the drug were available. This has led to a crackdown and has strictly directed all the courier companies to abide by the police directive.
