Udupi, Oct 17: "In the district of Udupi so far narcotic drugs worth Rs 73,39,500 are confiscated. Three high profile cases are cracked and four people are arrested. Synthetic drugs are also confiscated from them. We have to make Udupi district as drug-free. That is why the police department of the district is fighting with the drug network. No one involved in the drug trade will be spared," said SP Vishnuvardhan.

Vishnuvardhan was speaking at the press conference that was held at the office of the SP in the city on Saturday, October 17.

The SP further said, "In the last five years, 211 cases of ganja consumption, sales and transportation are registered against public and students. 224 people are arrested. Apart from ganja, for the first time in the district of Udupi, synthetic drugs are confiscated by the police. Ten people are arrested through reverse investigation.

"As many as 1,019 MDMA tablets worth Rs 30,57,000 weighing 540 grams, 1,000 LSD stamps worth Rs 30 lac, 30 grams of brown sugar worth Rs three lac and 131 gram of superior hydro weed worth Rs 9,82,500 is confiscated by the department.

"We have to trace the source of drugs. Intense search is in progress. Most of the dealings are taking place through Dark Web. The point of concern is that those who are selling drugs are aiming to sell them at Manipal. The department has given instructions to the educational institutions also to take strict action on the students who consume narcotic drugs.
