Meghalaya: Police departments across the country are getting more and more creative with their tweets. A few months ago, Assam Police asked anyone who had lost 590 kilograms of ganja to come forward and claim it.
On Thursday, Meghalaya Police tweeted about Shillong drug peddlers selling a powdered fruit drink instead of narcotics and urged anyone who had been ripped off by them to come forward and report it.
The tweet read: "SCAM ALERT! *clears throat* Shillong market is so dry that peddlers are fooling their clients with Rasna(!?) Powder. If you just got 'Rasna Ripped' off by your drug peddler, you know where to report. Kudos to ANTF (The Anti Narcotic Task Force) team!"
The hilarious tweet included a picture of three small packets filled with an orange powder.
Their tweet left netizens chuckling. Take a look at some of the reactions:
