The Government Railway Police (GRP) has seized 200 kg ganja worth Rs 30 lakh from eight persons in three separate cases, a senior official said today.

The raids and checking in trains and at platforms is part of a drive against illegal transport and possession of drugs and other psychotropic substances, said DGP (Telangana Railways and Road Safety) T Krishna Prasad.
The arrested accused procured the ganja from Odisha, Visakhapatnam and supplied it in Maharashtra.
