Indian Coast Guard recovered 3 packets of Charas weighing approximately 3 kg worth Rs 4 lakh off Jakhau last week. Regular vigilance by interceptor craft has led to this recovery.
The Indian Coast Guard in coordination with other stakeholders has been the prime agency involved in recovery of narcotics substances in the recent past off Gujarat coast. The ICG has increased its patrolling in and around Jakhau area with its Interceptor Boats, Interceptor Crafts and Air Cushion Vessels to maintain a strict vigil.
