Mangaluru: Duo including doctor arrested for peddling hydro weed worth over Rs 30 lac


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (ANK)

Mangaluru Jun 30: City crime branch police arrested two persons including a woman who is a final year MBBS student, for possessing hydro weed ganja (marijuana) under Ullal police station limits on Wednesday June 30.

The accused have been identified as Minu Rashmi (27) from Kanyakumari presently residing in Suratkal. She is a final year MBBS student at Kanhanghad and Ajmal T Mangalpaady from Kasargod (24). As much as 1.236 kg of hydro weed ganja worth Rs 30 lac to Rs 1 crore, one car, two mobile phones were seized from the duo.

The prime accused Dr Nadir from Kasargod has fled the country. It is said that the accused came to Mangaluru from Kanhangad by train. Rashmi is acquainted with Ajmal and Nadir. On the directions of Dr Nadir, the accused were on the way to Derlakatte in a car to deliver hydro weed to Dr Nadir’s friend.

The accused would buy ganja and supply it in parts of Konaje, Uppala, Ullal and Mangaluru.

Police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said, "The hydro weed ganja is cultivated using the hydroponic technique. This technique is practised in foreign countries and the drug is exported. We suspect that the hydro weed is brought from a European country. We have produced the accused before the court. We aim to bust the racket of the hydro weed as 1.26 kg of this drug is a huge quantity. As per the internet, the cost can be anywhere between Rs 2,000 to Rs 25,000 for a gram."

"Primary investigation revealed that they were targeting students of Kasargod, Mangaluru to supply hydro weed. In the last three months, we have been cracking drugs cases effectively. Once the college reopens the movement of peddlers will be high, and our officers will work assertively to crack NDPS cases.

"During our raid, the MBBS student's involvement was revealed in the transactions. When we cracked MDMA cases and arrested nine people including three Nigerian nationals, we not only registered the case but are also backtracking, and doing forward linking of the cases and arresting the others involved," he added.

When asked about whether other medical students were involved, the police commissioner said, "We can't generalize one particular student community and target them. In earlier cases, coolie workers, engineering and medical students were arrested. There are different categories of people involved in this regard. However, we are finding that a lot of people from Kasargod are involved in the peddling process."

He also said, "Cooperation from the public is very important. There is an instance where we cracked cases on receiving tip-offs from the public.

"I have seen several reports in the media which states that there are more drug cases in Mangaluru. But this is because our officers are working effectively to crack the case on a priority basis. If we slack then the drug menace will not be controlled," said N Shashi Kumar.

DCP law and order Hariram Shankar was also present at the press meet.

    I wonder why some Mangaloreans are so racist like. When did we become like this? Remember that crimes cannot be attributed to a whole community. We cannot generalize a whole group because of some people. Mallus are also responsible for bringing in a lot of money to our city and various business establishments depend on their money. Also, don't forget that a lot of health workers are mallus. Why aren't our people in those fields if we were so good? There are also familes living on both sides of the border. Anyone can travel anywhere in the country for work or for studies. It's their choice. I know a lot of Mangaloreans working in Kerala in IT fields and all. Remember we are all Indians first!

    many people feel that drug offences are small offences... in fact, many countries have capital punishment for drug offenders... drug peddlers strike at the very fabric of families and societies....

    Looks like these drug peddlers trap these students spiking in their drinks and then lure them with money and use them. Youngsters specially women and students need to be alert when making friends, so not get trapped by these anti socials.

    So moral policing,home stay attack,pub attack,communal violence,church attacks which made national headlines were done by mallus,north indians according to you? Typical indian public memory,forgets everything in 1 month.It was a mallu girl student who saved a girl who was stabbed from the attacker who certainly wasn't mallu or north indian,i'm sure you dont remember that.

    Mangalore is spoiled by mallus coming here for various reasons, ranging from ragging, gold smuggling to drug platform that's why i strongly dislike them here. why can't they use their state for the same ? such a beautiful city with cool people now targeted by mallus & north indians.

    Agreed. This is because right from early childhood they are being taught that Mallus are most intelligent and educated people in the country. So when grown up they are always under the impression that people of other states are illiterate fools and try to dominate wherever they settle. This is one of the reasons why Balasaheb Thackeray led a tirade against South Indians in the 1960s.
