Gurugram: Three persons, including a woman, were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly possessing about 3.6 kilograms of marijuana in two different cases.

A police official privy to the investigation, requesting anonymity, said one of the suspects works at a private company. “They had sourced the narcotics from Kerala for potential customers in the city. We are checking their criminal records, and if they have been arrested earlier,” said the police official.
