    These are street retailers. Where are the king pins who import this and ecstasy tablets. Catch them to really stop the menace of drugs. This is just fooling around to show that they are catching some.

    If Police can solve murders and other crime so swiftly, why cannot they catch the real culprits who import the drugs.
