New Delhi, July 12 (IANS) Delhi Police busted an inter-state drug cartel and arrested its two members here, recovering 800 kilos of cannabis (ganja) worth Rs 2.4 crore in international market from them.
"Mohammad Kajim (26),who was presently living at Delhi's Nangloi area and Dinesh Kumar (34) a resident of Uttar Pradesh's Mirzapur were arrested from Bawana area on Thursday following a tip off when they were carrying 800 kilograms of cannabis in a Nagaland registration number truck," Additional Commissioner of Police Rajiv Ranjan said.
"During interrogation, Kajim disclosed that around two years ago he came in contact with Salam, a drug trafficker. Salam supplies ganja to several drug peddlers in Delhi and NCR area. Salam used to procure ganja from Andhra Pradesh in trucks. Initially, Kajim would do odd jobs for him," he said.
"However, since March 2019, Salam started sending Kajim to fetch Ganja from Andhra Pradesh. Kajim would reach Visakhpatnam by train. Salam would also reach Visakhapatnam by air. Salam would meet one Anand Pandey in Visakhapatnam who used to arrange ganja, the truck and the driver," said Ranjan said.
It was Kajim's job to travel back to Delhi on the truck loaded with Ganja. Meanwhile, Dinesh Kumar told police that he met Anand two months ago and Anand used to call him to get in touch with one Anwar in Visakhapatnam who used to get the trucks loaded with ganja, said the Additional CP.
After loading the ganja, Dinesh would drive back to UP, Rajasthan or Delhi, as directed by Anand Pandey, said the Additional CP.
Efforts are on to arrest Salam, Anand Pandey and Anwar, he said.
