Drug peddlers arrested 

In its earlier operation on the drug peddlers in the city who have become more active since the coronavirus induced lockdown, the Bengaluru police arrested four separate gangs from ITPL, Tumkur Road, Old Madras Road. 

The police recovered drugs weighing few kilograms in the operation and 10 peddlers were arrested and sent to jail. The operations were based on the information they received about the accused carrying ganja in a bike to sell it to their customers across Bengaluru.

Three among the peddlers were first arrested by the cops near the Old Madras Road, which later led Nelamangala rural police to the arrest of remaining members in the gang. Most of the accused are young men aged between 20 to 30 years.
