Manipur: CM N Biren Singh meets Amit Shah a day after all-party meet on violence in the state

Five medical students from Karnataka have been arrested on the charges of cultivating and peddling ‘ganja’ on Sunday in two separate cases, according to the police. Among the five arrested, three students were involved in cultivation of cannabis at a rented house.

According to reports, two people from Vijayapura, and Ballari were detained on Friday and 466 gm of ganja and a few other banned items worth Rs 20,000 was seized from them. Reports claim that police action came after a tip-off that the accused, who lived in a rented house at Hale Gurupura, were selling ganja among the locals. In another separate incident, police on Saturday picked up three people during a raid in a rented house in Shivaganga Layout. 

The police asserted that one of the accused from Tamil Nadu was growing ganja in a room by creating artificial sunlight inside a tent, using special bulbs. The accused is said to have collected details regarding ganja cultivation through the internet and had brought seeds online. 

Reportedly, the police seized 227 gm of ganja, which costs around Rs 5800, 1.53 kg of fresh ganja that costs around 1.53 kg, 10 gm of charas, ganja seeds, cannabis oil, ganja powder, electronic weighing machine, exhaust fan, six table fan, two stabilizers, three LED lights, hookah pipes, pots, and Rs 19,000 in cash from them. 

On Sunday, the police affirmed that they have lodged a case under Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.  Under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985, a person is prohibited from production, manufacturing, cultivation, possession, sale, purchasing, transport, storage and/or consumption of any narcotic drug or psychotropic substance. The police further added that investigations are on to find out whether they were distributing these items in their home state or towns as well. In Karnataka, The Karnataka Prohibition Act of 1961 classifies ganja and bhang as “intoxicating drugs” and thereby prohibits its manufacture, possession and consumption with the exception for medicinal purposes.
