Hyderabad: Police started collecting the call data records (CDR) of the three suspects, including an MBA student, who were caught selling ganja to students in Hayathnagar. Police suspects that around 100 students from engineering colleges in the area were their clients.
Prakash Chandra, a second year MBA student from St Mary’s Engineering College, a medical decoding employee Kumar Sanu and Vijay Singh who works as a chef in Mount Opera were arrested by police in a decoy operation. The police, with the help of a student, approached Vijay asking for 10 sachets of ganja, but since the student was approaching them for the first time, Vijay asked him to come to another location.
On reaching there, Vijay gave him two sachets and asked him to call the next day for more, but warned him not to come home. Police nabbed Vijay and using the inputs given by him, nabbed Prakash and Kumar.
Police found that Prakash and Vijay stay in Meerpet and travel on a scooter. Prakash conceals ganja in his college bag along with books. Vijay's shift at Mount Opera starts in the afternoon, but he comes to Hayathnagar in the morning along with Prakash to supply ganja.
The gang had spread its business to almost all the 10 engineering colleges in Hayathnagar, Abdullapurmet and Batasingaram and has trapped around 100 students from these colleges apart from other clients.
"We could not get much information from them about their clients. After analysing call data records, we can identify their client base and know details," police said.
On Friday, the police arrested the trio and recovered 450 grams of ganja from them packed in 50 sachets. They admitted to smuggling 3 kg ganja from Odisha a few months ago, but have already sold 2.5 kg to regular customers....
