    Ganja smuggling in Hyderabad continues to be a problem despite efforts by the police to stop it. The trend has spread to areas like Nanak Ram Guda, in addition to Old Basti Dulpet. Grocery stores are now installing QR code scanners and accepting money for the illegal substance.

    A joint operation by Golconda police and the narcotics team resulted in the arrest of a gang involved in selling ganja. The gang consisted of ten people, with four of them being apprehended. Six others, including two women and one juvenile, are currently on the run. Key figures in this case include Gautam Singh, his mother Neetu Bhai, and his aunt Madhu Bhai. They run a grocery shop in Nanak Ram Guda where they sell ganja. Gautam Singh has had a previous NDPS case in 2019, while Neetu Bhai has been involved in cases since 2018 and had a PD Act registered against her in 2021.

    Despite being released from jail, Neetu Bhai continued her involvement in ganja smuggling. All the accused are family members and a total of 1.53 crore cash from 16 bank accounts used by them have been frozen. The police also seized properties worth 40.30 lakhs from the sale of ganja, along with 23.4 kg of ganja and the car used for transportation. Additionally, two two-wheelers, phone pay scanners, and mobile phones were confiscated.

    The total value of the recovered property from the accused is estimated to be around Rs 4 crores. The gang members work together to sell ganja for quick money. They purchase ganja for 8,000 per kg from Dulpet and then package it into five-gram packets, selling each packet for 250 rupees. It is believed that the gang has purchased two G+2 houses in Gandhi Nagar and Langar House, earning approximately 50,000 rupees per kg. The gang makes around 30,000 rupees per day.
