Micro-blogging site Twitter has become a reliable option for several ministries and police department to connect with people. From Indian Railways helping a woman being harassed in train to External Affairs ministry helping a man get his visa and police department carrying out safety campaigns, Twitter has seen everything. Adding on to the list, a recent tweet by Meghalaya police has left the internet tripping-with laughter.

Meghalaya Police\'s Tweet on Drug is Tripping the Internet!

The tweet, which apparently aims at nabbing drug peddlers, read, “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!”

Being shared on August 15, the tweet has since been going viral. Some viewers even came up with hilarious comments. “Not only in Shillong but if anybody got in this scam anywhere in India. Do call the cops for a Rasna drink together,” wrote one Twitter user. “ This will be the first time when the drug peddler, the addict and the police will have a blast together. Jokes apart Kudos to @MeghalayaPolice,” tweeted another.
