The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) must investigate accusations that Amazon is being used to sell marijuana, according to the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

The merchants' body's secretary-general, Praveen Khandelwal, held a news conference seeking an NCB investigation into accusations of marijuana being sold on Amazon in Madhya Pradesh.

Two individuals were nabbed with 20 kg of marijuana by MP Police on Sunday at a roadside cafe in Bhind district. During questioning, the pair is said to have admitted to using Amazon to transport marijuana from Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.

"They had already obtained almost one tonne (1,000 kg) of ganja utilising the same platform in the previous four months." During the previous four months, Bhind DSP Manoj Kumar Singh reported monetary transactions totalling Rs 1.10 crore.

Investigators believe the ringleader trafficked marijuana to operatives in Bhind (MP), Agra (UP), Delhi, Gwalior (MP), and Kota under the pretext of curry leaves (Kadi Patta) (Rajasthan).

According to one source, local officials of Amazon Inc have been called by the MP Police in connection with the issue. Meanwhile, an Amazon spokeswoman claimed that the business is looking into whether the vendor in the issue broke any rules.
