Partly decayed Betel leaves found
THOUBAL, 19th Apr: Bulks of partly decayed Betel leaves were found abandoned at Andro Sarphei agricultural field on Sunday evening.
Finding of the said Betel leaves was reported by some local farmers. It is said that similar betel leaves were also found dumped at Andro Aram road and Lampheisoi area.
Till the time of filing this report, it cannot be established who dumped the Betel leaves but local people expressed suspicion that the Betel leaves might have been brought among the consignment of essential commodities but could not be marketed owing to the outcry over seizure of huge quantity of betel leaves at Imphal Airport.
