Bengaluru: Corona robs jobs - Dubai returnee software engineers turn drug peddlers


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru. Jul 21: Two software engineers who were selling drugs in the city were arrested by Suddugune Palya police personnel. When the arrested engineers, Muhammed Irfan, and Tariq Hassan, were questioned, the police were shocked. Both Irfan and Hassan had gone to Dubai from Kerala a few years back and were working as software engineers. Because of coronavirus, they left their jobs and returned to their home towns.

The youngsters who were drawing handsome salaries, found it difficult to carry on with life. They got introduced to a man from Hyderabad through a common friend. The man from Hyderabad turned them into drug peddlers in a few days. The man, who had many foreign customers in Bengaluru, used to supply drugs through these two men.

The man used to bring Hashish from Hyderabad and sell the same to foreigners. The youngsters used to supply drugs two to three times a month and earned up to five lac rupees per month, the police found.

The police have taken both of them into custody. However, in spite of detailed questioning, the accused did not reveal anything about their Hyderabad-based boss. They are just saying that the boss paid them several lacs per month and helped them to find a way of life when they were devastated. The police have taken into custody drugs worth two crore rupees from their possession. Both the mobile phones have been taken into custody. If the police are able to find out about the identity of the Hyderabad drug supplier, they will be able to crack more drug cartels.

    US and European countries give citizenship to those educated classes after ten years of stay. Similarly malyalees and Hyderabadi contributed enormously for the growth oil rich oil countries in the form of tea stall to Super market chain. Many Muslims think gulf countries as their second home. These deserving people should get at least some kind of dual citizenship in oil rich countries. Unemployment can be solved.

    There is a lot of hiring happening these days. Not at all difficult to find jobs for software engineers. But companies will not pay 5 lakhs per month!

    Somehow their statement is not satisfying me.They say because of Corona ,they left the job and came to India.One must be not very clever ,to leave the job and come back .That itself clears ,they were jobless or doing odd jobs or there also selling drugs ?

    If they have lost job in Dubai, if they are competent job seekers, for IT has a lot of potential. This kind of excuse is not acceptable.

    I am not supporting these guys, nor do I have a soft corner, but surely, you are speaking as if these guys were involved in petty business since time immemorial. If the police are shocked with their confession there could be some genuineness in their cases. If you are influential and so concerned about their welfare, why don't you use your contacts and employ them. You will do a world of good to them.

    I too doubt like many others in this forum,whether they were engineers.That too they had gone few years back,now because of Corona lost job.Police too should really prove whether it was true,where they worked or only returned since no job was not available.I doubt jobs like software engineers are mostly given good chance.probably were without job so corona made them to return.?Now when they name the person to Police who is their boss is ,next day they may not live.or when come out want to continue that business?This as drug peddlers earn lacs?whether they realise their lives too are not safe in this business?Software engineers are in India too earn good .why not look out for it here?

    It's not the Corona Virus that pushed them into this trade, it's greed for money and lavish life at the cost of destroying people's lives. So many people have lost jobs in Gulf and elsewhere because of Corona Virus but many have found ways to sustain with a simple living. So loss of Gulf job is a lame excuse to be in this trade

    So, if ever there is huge job loss in middle east then !? most of the people from India residing in ME for their greener pasture !! Govt should think about the future plans to our younger generation to come ! at least encourage the AGRICULTURE activities as its almost disappeared in DK and UDUPI. Thru the modern technology can be restored and given jobs for many instead flying to other countries as LABOURs and lending their youth to unknown Country !! Nalinin and Shobha should spend sometimes to think about the JOB opportunities within the DK and UDUPI

    Don't think there is any need to glorify any such acts by giving lame excuses. All have problems in life. Further more, a drug peddler is a drug peddler, a terrorist is a terrorist. Period.

    Nothing new. The common factor is always involved in such activities. Its time to play the victim card. Kerala had no organizations at any point of time. All the mallus are scattered elsewhere in India or in the Gelf for a better career. Meanwhile, there are thousands of SW engineers who have seen opportunities during the COVID as everything has gone digital. Of course you have to be capable. Perhaps their degree may have been issued by the Kasargod embassy itself. You cannot blame God, Modi and Corona for everything in life.
