Lucknow, July 27 (IANS) Two men, who worked for a Nepal-based illegal drugs racket, have been arrested with opium worth Rs.7 crore in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur district, police said Tuesday.
Rajendra Kumar and Rajesh Kumar, in their mid 30s, were nabbed late Monday from Leharpur town, about 80 km from here.
