Bhubaneswar: As part of its anti-drug drive, the Special Task Force (STF) of Odisha Crime Branch  conducted a crackdown last evening and seized brown sugar weighing 1.26 kg. The STF also arrested three persons in this connection.

On the basis of intelligence input, a team of STF conducted a raid near Khordha bus stand and nabbed the trio-Aftab alias Md Saiyaz of Mastan Road in Cuttack, Muna alias SK Kamruddin of Chakhandi in Purunabazar of Bhadrak district and Sourav Pattanaik of Palla of Khordha district.

As the accused persons failed to produce any valid documents in support of possession of the contraband materials, the team arrested them. They also seized brown sugar and other incriminating materials from their possession.
