BENGALURU: The Ramamurthy Nagar police stumbled upon a peddler, who was selling ganja by hiding it in gas cylinders behind the K.R. Puram railway station on Monday evening.
The accused, Gulabjan alias Gulabi, 40, is a resident of Vijinapura, Ramamurthy Nagar.
After receiving a tipoff, the police went near the railway station and caught Gulabi trying to sell marijuana hidden in two LPG cylinders. The police are trying to find out where the cylinders were modified and sold.
