Labourers turn out to be crorepati drug peddlers

Two daily wage labourers have turned out to be big-time drug peddlers  in the city.  

The lavish lifestyle of Rachappa (34) and Srinivas (47), both from Chamarajanagar, led the police on their trail. Police kept watch and caught them  when they came to  sell drugs in Koramangala, Southeast Bengaluru.  

Police said they were surprised to learn that the men earned a whopping  Rs 40 lakh a year and had been  peddling drugs for the past 12 years. They  sold at least 30 kg  marijuana  every week. They had amassed crores of rupees in the past decade.  Police seized  26 kg marijuana  from their car,  besides Rs 5 lakh in cash.  

A senior police officer said  the men had rented a house in Chandapura to store marijuana and hired jobless youth as drug peddlers. Their clients were mainly  college students and software engineers.
