NCB to open Chhattisgarh office
Raipur, June 18 (IANS) The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) is set to open an office in Chhattisgarh.
"Seeing the gravity of drug trafficking in Chhattisgarh, the government had sent a proposal to the central government to open an NCB office here," said Principal Secretary (Home) N.K. Aswal.
