According to police Joginder Singh had come to Hyderabad one and a half months back to pursue a course in Active Server Page and had joined Satya Technology in Ameerpet. “He and his classmate Manas stayed in a rented room at Mayuri Apartments in Begumpet and made a plan to sell charas in the city to earn quick money,” said inspector of police S. Rama Chandra Reddy. “As per their plan, Manas went to Shimla and purchased half kilo charas for Rs. 45,000, which they wanted to sell for Rs. 4 lakh,” he said.
Mr Reddy added that the duo later contacted Bikash and asked him for help selling the drug. “Bikash and Venkat agreed to help them and asked for Rs.30,000 as commission,” he said. Police arrested the trio while they were waiting for customers at Big Bazar, Ameerpet. Deputy commissioner of police Ch. Ramchander said all the accused came from middle class families. “They wanted to lead a lavish life by selling charas,” he said and added that if the gang had not been busted, they would have introduced charas among new students. A case has been booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.
