Manali: The lockdown in the country may have broken the backbone of synthetic drug mafia, but charas mafia is still active in Himachal, as Kullu police on Thursday seized 42.05kg charas (hashish) from a pickup truck at Fagu bridge in Banjar sub-division of Kullu district.

This is the largest charas seizure in the last 17 years in Kullu district, the place notorious for cultivation of the world’s best and expensive charas.
