Tiryani Sub-Inspector P Rama Rao said that the accused were Mucchiveni Bheemaiah, a resident of Naikapuguda, a hamlet under Govena and Abdullah of Jainoor mandal.

Bheemaiah was found to be growing 30 ganja plants in his field, when police conducted raids on cotton and red gram crops in the village as part of a drive to clamp down the menace. Abdullah confessed to purchasing the contraband substance from Bheemaiah. A case was booked against the two. Investigation is underway and stringent action would be taken against growers of the ganja, Rama Rao warned.
