HYDERABAD: The South Zone police and Abids police on Thursday arrested a farmer-turned-drug peddler and seized 354 bottles of hash oil worth Rs 18 lakhs.
The accused, Koda Minna Rao, was a farmer from Sarvepalli, Paderu, Visakhapatnam, who used to make a living by cultivating his own land. According to the police, due to the low revenue from growing vegetables, paddy, and other crops, he experienced a financial crisis and found it difficult to support his family.
He eventually became acquainted with Anwar Singh, a narcotics dealer in Vijayawada, according to South Zone police. They later came up with a plan to make a quick buck by selling hash oil in other states. According to their arrangement, Anwar Singh sent Minna Rao roughly two litres of hash oil to sell it in other places for a huge profit.
Minna Rao travelled to Hyderabad to smuggle the hash oil to desperate clients.
On a tip-off, the Commissioner's Task Force, in coordination with South Zone Team and Abids Road Police, arrested the suspect and seized 354 bottles of hash oil, each of which contained five ml. The arrested suspect and seized hash oil were handed over to the Abids Road PS for further investigation.
