Huge haul of narcotics seized in Vijayawada, 5 held
Vijayawada, March 20 (INN): Vijayawada police on Sunday discovered to their horror that the tentacles of the illegal drugs suppliers, which have rocked the state capital Hyderabad, have also spread to this city. The Vijayawada Task Force on Sunday arrested a five-member gang involved in selling banned drugs to college students.
The Task Force sleuths seized a large quantity of narcotic drugs, which were being supplied to the college students in the city and seized about 13,000 narcotic injections from their possessions. Sleuths said that the supply of the banned drugs was through a chain of peddlars and suppliers.
The narcotic substances were being peddled to students, youths and labourers in areas like Krishna Lanka, Satyanarayanapuram, Priyadarshini Cinema, Sanjeevaiah Colony and Arundalpet in the city. The Task force officials also added that they are yet to estimate the market value of seized drugs.
