Several times, the locals have raised their voice against the trade of contraband substances. However, despite this, the police have been unable to bust the mafia elements behind the illegal trade.
The members of Hindu Utsav Samity have raised questions over the role of police too. They claim that although the police round up the persons responsible for the illegal substance trade, they manage to come out of legal wrangle soon.
Under the circumstances, arrest of four women for peddling contraband substances has come as a big success for the police.
