Bengaluru: Four of a drug-peddling gang were nabbed by Bengaluru police while selling 20kg ‘ganja’ allegedly to raise money for securing bail for their ring leader.

The accused were identified as Purushotham N (26) of New Timberyard Layout, Kiran R (21) of Srinagar, Karthik V (21) of Cottonpete Main road, and Rahul L alias Arjun (28). Three other accused — Kullu Rizwan, Bharat, and Auto Viji — who are involved in the crime are absconding, police said.

Police said they were subordinates of notorious drug peddler Rahul alias ‘Star’ Rahul who had been arrested by police a few days ago.

VV Puram police said they confiscated 20.6 kg of ganja worth Rs 6 lakh, a Honda City car, weapons, mobile phones, and cash from the accused.

According to police, Kullu Rizwan, the chief partner-in-crime of ‘Star’ Rahul, planned the drug sale after they came to know about his arrest. The accused were waiting for Kullu Rizwan, Bharat, and Auto Viji to hand over the cannabis near K R Puram. Based on a tipoff the VV Puram police reached the spot in time and nabbed them red-handed, police said.

The drug peddling racket came to light when KG Nagar police arrested 4 teenagers in Andhra Pradesh on January 7. During questioning the teens revealed Rahul and Rizwan were their ring leaders.

Interestingly, ‘Star’ Rahul had released a video on social media challenging the police to catch him after which he was caught by police on January 17, media reports said.
