Hyderabad: Two persons were arrested and 70 kilos of ganja seized from them by the Commissioner’s Task Force (West) on Thursday.
The arrested persons were Narsing Singh (23) of SR Nagar and Ramavath Ramesh (37) of Bapu Nagar.
City Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar said both the arrested persons were previously involved in criminal cases and were planning to sell the ganja in the city after sourcing it from Sileru in Visakhapatnam. Ramesh had gone to Sileru and purchased the contraband from one Ravi for Rs 4,000 to Rs 5,000 a kilogram. Narsing had transferred Rs 50,000 to Ravi through Google Pay as advance.
“After bringing the contraband to the city, they kept it at a house in Jubilee hills. They later packed it into 10 gram-pouches and were selling it for Rs 150 each to customers when they were caught,” Anjani Kumar said.
