Excise officials on Wednesday seized 6.5 kg of hashish worth around ₹10 crore and arrested a carrier here, in the first ever haul of the drug in such magnitude.

Hashish is widely used in north India and is suspected to have been smuggled into Kerala via road from Nepal. Excise Deputy Commissioner K. Chandrapalan told reporters that Judeson Varghese, who hails from Fort Vypeen, was overpowered by Excise sleuths while he was on his way to carry out a deal.
