Students held for peddling drugs

Shyamdas, Arish Kumar and Jibin John.

The police arrested three students over drug peddling and seized 23.6 kg of marijuana worth Rs 4.6 lakh from them. 

Jibin John (21), a BTech final year student at a private college; Arish Kumar (24), pursuing a diploma in civil engineering; and Shyamdas (24), a BA (English) student, all hail from Kerala and became friends while selling marijuana.

The police are searching for their associates Gokul and Aroman, both from Avalahalli. 

The three men were addicted to drugs and sold marijuana to buy more drugs. They brought in the marijuana from Kerala and Visakhapatnam, stashed it in Gokul’s house in Avalahalli and distributed it in smaller packets. Students and software engineers were their main clients.  Based on a tip-off, the police caught the trio red-handed when they were at Suddaguntepalya to deliver drugs. The police later raided their house and seized the drugs stashed .
