Man held for selling weed through FB

- No Comments -
“Prison is for rapists, thieves and murderers. If you lock someone up for smoking a plant that makes them happy, you are the ###### criminal,” screamed a note posted by Susheel Kumar Moosad on his Facebook page which he had brazenly named “Bangalore Cannabis”.

But cops weren’t swayed by his argument and he was arrested on charges of drug trafficking using the social media.

A former tech-company employee and a resident of Ramamurthynagar, Susheel was caught in possession of 1.1 kg of ganja and LSD blotters.

A cop from CCB said, “He had taken drug peddling to an altogether different level. He was using Facebook to lure his customers. He had posted pictures of himself smoking pot and had also given his contact details.” The cops got wind of his business following a tip-off from an unknown person through the FB page that was getting more popular by the day as it was making drugs easily available.

Posing as potential customers, the cops called him up and asked him to deliver drugs near Hebbal on Outer Ring Road.

When Masood arrived, the cops nabbed him.

The cops seized Rs 30,000 worth of LSD (lysergic acid diethyl-amide) blotters, weed and one mobile phone.

The weed was packed in 25g packets and was being sold for amounts ranging between Rs 500 and Rs 2,000.

The cops said the LSD blotters were being sold for Rs 2,000 to Rs 3,000.

According to cops, Susheel has been an addict for the last 16 years and he came up with the idea of selling weed online to bankroll his addiction.

The cops said that after receiving calls from buyers, he used to visit their locality to deliver the package.

BENGALURU: A VHP leader was killed and over 30 other activists were injured during a protest march in Madikeri, about 250km from Bengaluru.

Several organizations including VHP had called for a bandh to protest the government-sponsored Tipu Sultan Jayanti celebrations on Tuesday. However, the protest march took a communal turn, leading to violence. The police had to rush in additional reinforcements to take control of the situation.

50-year-old Kuttappa, organizing secretary of VHP in Kodagu, who was grievously injured in the incident, succumbed to injuries at a local hospital, police sources said.

Nearly, 30 VHP activists were also injured after the rioters resorted to stone-pelting.

According to local reports, the reason for the communal flare up was stone pelting by some miscreants during the procession to protest against the Tipu Jayanti celebrations in Madikeri town.

Over 20 shops and an equal number of houses were also attacked and looted after the incident, police sources added.
