Hyderabad | 8th July 2017
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Excise Enforcement Directorate has unearthed another drug racket gang operating in the twin cities and seized large quantities of cocaine and LSD.

After having gathered credible information that a six-member gang of Nigerians was peddling drugs by operating from a posh apartment in Shaikpet, the SIT raided the premises on Friday night. However, upon seeing the large force of excise personnel approaching the apartment, five members of the gang managed to escape, and only one was apprehended.

Based on the information provided by the arrested Nigerian, the SIT officers kept vigil at a posh star hotel in the Panjagutta area and nabbed two more persons while they were in the process of supplying cocaine to the hotel's customers. The SIT officers found out that one of the two arrested was working in the hotel, and was the main contact for customers visiting the hotel for their regular quota of drugs.

The two were stated to be procuring their supply of drugs from the Nigerian gang.

Investigations revealed that the gangsters had come to the city to pursue higher studies, and during the course of their stay had found drug peddling a lucrative business. Their main clientele were students coming from elite families and in possession of cell phones and credit or debit cards. Other customers were high society members, including from the film fraternity, frequenting pubs and posh hotels.

The gang was stated to be operating by using modern technology extensively including Darknet websites to market its "products", which it used to procure from abroad. However, this gang had no link to the Calvin gang nabbed earlier.
