The baggage containing the cannabis was found in a general coach of the express train. As no one claimed its ownership, the RPF personnel seized the bag and found the banned drug inside it.

The contraband was handed over to the excise department. A case under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act has been registered, the release said.
