Cambodian police pull off big drugs bust of ketamine dealers

Cambodian police on Tuesday said that they killed one man accused of trafficking and have seized over two tons of the drug ketamine in a major anti-drug operation in the past few days.

Gen. Mok Chito, deputy chief of Cambodia’s National Police, told reporters that 13 individuals accused of either drug trafficking or being involved in its manufacture were also arrested.

Ketamine has legitimate medical uses, especially as an anesthetic for animals, but is also abused as a recreational drug. Cambodia and many other countries tightly regulate its production and sale.
