Udupi: Police find ganja in arrested accused Swaroop Shetty's flat

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP) 

Udupi, Aug 21: The police searched the flat at Manipal in which Swaroop

Shetty (23) from Manipal used to live, on Tuesday August 20. Shetty is under arrest relating to a case of blackmail. 

The police found 90 grams ganja, a cell phone, several sim cards, documents pertaining to motorbikes, bank records and some other items. It is learnt that the items recovered seemed to support the notion that he was involved with a number of illegal activities. 

As soon as Swaroop was taken into custody, the police had locked the flat and collected its key. Later, police security was posted there. 

The police were given to understand that whenever Swaroop blackmailed his friends, he used to mention the names of a police officer and a police subordinate staff. He seemed to be very friendly with these two going by the way he used their names, sources said. But it is not clear whether he used their names to blackmail the people or whether he actually was close to them.

    At such a young age of 23 a high profile criminal and conman. The police should not only check his criminal background but also his personal, how he was nurtured during his childhood days, who are his parents and closest relatives. If the upbringing of this boy has been bad then definitely the parents need counselling besides the boy. Sad to read this, being a good human being is a difficult job but being criminal and conman is so easy it requires tact.

    Time to think for Bunts seriously. Judge, Lawyers, Hoteliers, Landlords, CA, Surgeons, name any profession they are there.. I respect them a lot. I have many good friends, ready to die for you.

    Recent past unfortunately we see their names in such elements. Uneducated, unemployed, supporting fringe groups.
