Congolese 'drug peddler' held with 7 fake voter IDs

A Congolese national has been arrested by the Central Crime Branch (CCB) for peddling Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), a banned substance. His visa had expired more than a year ago and he had apparently acquired a fake identity by obtaining several voter ID cards.

Kparagume Nzorosa Glody (24) was arrested on Thursday and 3.5 grams of MDMA was seized from his possession. The CCB also seized seven voter ID cards, eight SIM cards, a mobile phone and a motorcycle from him.

In another case, CCB sleuths arrested a Nigerian national for trying to sell illegal items. The suspect was identified as Yusuf Ismalia (24), who lived in Banaswadi. 

The police seized three grams of cocaine, two laptops, a pen drive, a passport and a two-wheeler, all valued at Rs 1.5 lakh, from him. The CCB said its sleuths nabbed him while he was waiting for clients on a service road in Babusapalya, Hennur. Police are ascertaining if he was overstaying in the city.
