A huge haul of marijuana — colloquially known as ‘ganja’ — has been seized by sleuths from the narcotics wing of the Central Crime Branch.
On a tip-off, the CCB sleuths lay in wait for the drug-peddlers and arrested six persons — Sawara Kavitha, Killo Dhanurjay, Pangi Mathiraju, Uppalapatti Subbareddy, Gaurav and Mohammed Ammar Shamshad.
The suspects are involved in an inter-state marijuana racket. They get the narcotic from Andhra Pradesh and sell it in the Indiranagar and Mico Layout areas.
A search of the suspects revealed a huge stash of marijuana weighing 43 kg and worth over Rs 23 lakh. Also seized were six mobiles, a motorcycle and Rs. 20,000 in cash.
