A team of Dhaka Customs House with help of officials of National Security Intelligence (NSI) today seized the marijuana, a new psychoactive substance (NPS), from nine cartons which were brought to the country in a Jet Airways flight from India on September 6, said Othello Chowdhury, deputy commissioner of Dhaka Customs House.
The cartons were kept at the cargo unit upon suspicion after its arrival, and were opened today in presence of the officials of concerned authorities, the customs official said.
The NPS, known as Ethiopian marijuana, looks like green tea and is ingested by dissolving it in water, Othello said.
