In a big crackdown in Bengaluru, the police has seized 1,352 kg of marijuana in the state. Talking exclusively to Republic Media network, DCP west MN Anucheth said, “We found out that drugs used to come from Orissa and to Telangana and from Telangana to Karnataka. These people used to distribute from there, and they used to go in vehicles to buy vegetables but they used to transport marijuana in vegetable vans.”
The network of marijuana starts from Orissa, according to the investigating officer. Marijuana was cultivated in Orissa and supplied to other states. It is supplied from Orissa to Karnataka, Telangana, Andra Pradesh, and Maharashtra.
