ALOR SETAR: Three buskers, including a woman, have been detained by police in a raid on a house in Kampung Bukit Lembu, Langkawi, for possession of drugs.

Langkawi police chief Asst Comm Shariman Ashari said the three suspects, aged 24 to 26, were detained by the Langkawi police Narcotics Division at 1.30am on Friday (Aug 19).

"During the raid, police found a bag which contained 17 packets of ganja weighing 178.14g. Paraphernalia for smoking ganja were also found.
