Chennai Drug bust: Food delivery agent, techies caught; 10.5kg ganja seized
A food delivery agent was arrested for trading ganja at the doorstep on the pretext of delivering food. Police, after noticing a youth handing over a parcel instead of receiving it became suspicious. Upon cornering and questioning the agent, police uncovered the modus operandi and seized 10.5Kg ganja.
Chennai saw the revelation of the drug racket after police arrested a food delivery agent and techies K Pugazh Jermain, 26, and V Arun, 25, who were supplying ganja on pretext of having food delivered at their doorstep.
The network was established through a WhatsApp group and only known source referral was encouraged before admission and delivery into their fold.
Cops who were aware of drug racket busts in neighbouring state Karnataka's capital Bengaluru, were alert and became suspicious after they saw a delivery agent receive parcels from the youths rather than giving it to them.
Upon inquiry they kept changing their statements. When they checked the parcel, they found packets of ganja.
Police then raided the house of one of the techies and seized 10.5kg ganja.
