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.
