Mohana: Gajapati police destroyed ganja plants on 76 acres of land worth more than Rs 13 crore with the help of Excise officials on Tuesday.

Acting on a tip off, a joint raid was conducted by the Gajapati police and Excise officials at Chandiapada and Dariamba villages under Mohana police limits where they uprooted and destroyed the ganja plants. However, the police could not trace the culprit behind the cultivation of the contraband.

The drive was carried out to curb cultivation of ganja in the area, said sources.
