The police officers received a tip-off about the location of the gutkha after which a team from the Ghatkopar police raided his house at around 7.15pm.
“After searching his house, the police found the gutkha sachets. The police seized the packets and arrested Chaurasiya for selling noxious food items,” said Prakash Sutar, sub-inspector at Ghatkopar police station.
The police are interrogating Chaurasiya to find out about the distributor from whom he got the products. Further investigations are underway.
