Officials of the Navi Mumbai police’s anti-narcotics cell have arrested a 42-year-old woman for allegedly selling brown sugar on Tuesday.
Acting on a tip-off the police laid a trap at Hanuman Nagar near Turbhe Naka and arrested the accused Munni Shaikh, a resident of the same area.
The police have also recovered 6.84 gram brown sugar worth Rs22,000 from her possession and are trying to ascertain from where she procured the drugs.
“Shaikh has been arrested under sections 8 and 22 of the NDPS Act. She was taken to the court which remanded her in police custody,” said an officer from the anti-narcotics cell.
