The gang’s principal recipient, Bablu Shinde of Solapur, Maharashtra, and primary supplier, Subhash of Araku Valley, Andhra Pradesh, are both on the run. The group had planned a scheme to smuggle drugs in order to make quick money, and had obtained the country-made handgun for protection during transportation.
In the second case, the SOT Madhapur Zone, working with Narsingi police, apprehended two Maharashtra suppliers, Vishal Chandrakanth Shinde and Sagar Bhaban Deshmukh. These people were discovered carrying 720 kg of marijuana in a medium-sized truck. They were recruited to transport contraband from an Andhra Pradesh guy named Rahman to traffickers in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.
Rahman allegedly hires drivers to carry drugs across state lines, paying them Rs 12,000 every journey. The drugs in this particular operation were concealed within empty vegetable crates in the truck.The two people were captured in the early hours of Tuesday on a service road in Manchirevula.These successful operations show law enforcement’s continuous efforts to combat drug trafficking and illicit activity in the region.
