    Those in possession of Narcotics possessed them from someone who sold them and in turn was supplied by a large Narcotic dealer .. Never is the large dealer arrested and what's even more laughable is there are only two modes , by sea or by air . Defence secretary you boasted that we will be Narcotic Free in one year right ?
