The matter that shocked the police was the way in which the drugs were being supplied to the buyer. Baby milk containers were used for transporting these drugs, which were hidden below layers of chocolates and jelly candies. These baby milk containers carrying drugs were then wrapped with Amazon and delivered through DTDC courier service. 

Salim used to sell three-fourth of the supply to the customers identified by the Canadian drug cartel and kept one-fourth for his personal customers. The market price of the drug was Rs 3,000 to 4,000 per gram. Each baby milk container was stuffed with 2.7 kg of Marijuana which was neatly packed in 14 packets. 

Now it is known through investigation that Salim used to sell this drug, which he converted into hash oil, to his customers in Bengaluru and other cities in the country. Marijuana worth Rs 1 crore was confiscated from Salim by the police according to the information shared by Bhaskar Rao, Bengaluru police commissioner. 

Chocolates and mint were laced with Marijuana by the traffickers in order to drag starters and make them get addicted to the drug. The CCB has confiscated 12 chocolates in addition to three small Marijuana crushers that were used to make powder and also 100 tubes mixed with hash oil that was used in e-cigarettes. 

A weighing machine, Rs one lac in cash, a two-wheeler and a Skoda car was also taken into custody from the accused.

    This is happening in India means there no serious punishment. Nobody knows who's hand is in this. If Government make law like Gulf countries, automatically everything will alright. Atleast 90% we can reduce.
