The Delhi police have seized cardamom worth ₹72 lakh from a truck driver and his cleaner, who were planning to misappropriate it after collecting the same from its owner in east Delhi’s Patparganj.

DCP (East) Priyanka Kashyap said that on November 30, they received a complaint from Deepak Goel, who said that on November 27, one of the accused, Nem Singh, had collected 119 bags of cardamom from his godown located at Patparganj industrial area for transporting the same to a customer in Bareilly.
