Police Constable held for 'illegally' transporting cracker wicks
A police constable was among four people arrested for illegally transporting nine bags of cracker wicks worth Rs 80,000 at Melapatti village near Kallikudi, here today.
Police said during a routine vehicle check, a police team intercepted a mini-van with four occupants. The cops searched the van on suspicion and found nine gunny bags containing cracker wicks. As the occupants of the van did not possess any valid document for transporting them, the police arrested them.
The arrested were identified as Mohanraj (19), Theivam (48), Ganesh Pandiyan (24) and Sathish Kumar (28), a Police Constable attached to the Armed Reserve (AR) Police wing. Further investigations were on.
