If reports are to be believed, at least 11 drug lords who bought products off the dark web are involved in the racket across Bengaluru.
The police, however, clarified that neither Dunzo nor Rapido can be blamed for this as the workers “side-stepped” the company’s procedure and started selling drugs themselves.
Notably, the Bengaluru Police has been on the run since the arrest of popular Kannada actress Ragini Dwivedi that led to a huge drug bust running deep in the city.
The police have seized drugs worth Rs 2.2 crore, including 235 kg ganja (marijuana), 1,100 strips of LSD, 980 ecstasy tablets and 450 gm of MDMA crystals, and arrested 30 persons allegedly involved in drug trafficking in the city, mainly supplying the student community in the city.
