A cannabis eradication campaign was initiated at Paonta Sahib subdivision today. Over 5,000 cannabis plants were uprooted and destroyed by police teams.

Policemen from Paonta Sahib, Puruwala, Majra and Shillai police stations participated in the campaign. SHOs and in-charges, in liaison with local panchayat pradhans, NGOs and villagers, came together to make it successful.
