‘Rasna Ripped’ off! Meghalaya Police’s witty tweet on drug-related case goes viral

‘Rasna Ripped’ off! Meghalaya Police’s witty tweet on drug-related case goes viral

SHILLONG | Aug 16, 2019:

The drug peddlers in Shillong has surely taken their business to a whole new level OR should we say a new low!

Fooling their clients, the peddlers have started selling them powdered fruit drink (Rasna) instead of contraband.

This came to light after the Anti Narcotic Task Force of the East Khasi Hills district recovered these items, which of course took them by surprise.

The recovery became the talk of the town after the social media cell of the Meghalaya Police took to Twitter to share this humorous piece of discovery.

And creative as they are, the Police's witty sense of humour went viral on social media after they made a shout-out to all those who have been 'Rasna Ripped' off by their peddlers to register their complaints, if they wish to report. You know what that means!

This is what they wrote:

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 team!

This is not the first time that the Police have taken to social media platforms to highlight the ills that affect the society but with a tint of humour.

A similar post was shared by the Assam Police few months ago on the possession of ganja wherein they had posted: "Anyone lost a huge (590 kgs) amount of Cannabis/Ganja and a truck in and around Chagolia Checkpoint last night? Don't panic, we found it. Please get in touch with @Dhubri_Police. They will help you out, for sure 😉 Great job Team Dhubri."
