The Ludhiana Central jail staff seized smack, narcotic powder and 175 sedative pills from two inmates on Wednesday evening, after the accused were trying to smuggle the narcotics into the jail, after a court appearance.

The contraband was hidden in their underwear and the police got wind of it, when the inmates struggled to walk into the jail.
