Strengthening the claims of Pala Bishop that Muslim youths are waging a Narcotic Jihad on gullible non-Muslim youths, Kerala Police arrested two men and a women with large quantity of cannabis on October 13. They were arrested from Kozhikode.
The police have arrested Ahmad Nihal, Shamzad and Aneesha in this case. These drug peddlers were transporting cannabis in a car and were caught near Calicut Medical College. Kerala has been witnessing a sudden surge in drug-related cases in recent times.
In another case, one Fahad and his companion were arrested by the police for keeping 2 kg of cannabis recently. The locals had been complaining about the growing narcotics trade near the Calicut Medical College. They also said that most of the people who came to purchase drugs were of younger age.
Now the drug peddlers have also started to take non-Muslims as their drug carriers to evade the Muslim angle to the narcotic trade.
