Hyderabad: The West Zone Task Force team apprehended a 53-year-old man who was transporting ganja and seized 3 kg of the contraband along with a bike and a phone on Wednesday.
The accused, identified as Prakash Singh, 53, was a washerman by profession and was residing at Sun City in Bandlaguda, police said. “As his earnings were not sufficient to meet his expenses, he met one Bharath Singh, 33, a ganja supplier and upon his advice started selling the drug. Bharath paid him Rs 500 each day. He was earlier arrested by the Langer House police in 2016 and was remanded to judicial custody,” said the DCP, Commissioner’s Task Force, P. Radhakrishna Rao.
