"The police team was patrolling near his village. After getting specific information, police immediately swung into action and arrested the accused along with 37.5 kg of green opium plants and 1.2 kg Doda Post," the police said.
The accused has been identified as Kulwant Singh, a resident of Rania in district Sirsa, the police added.

The police have registered cases under the provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act against both the accused.
