Bengaluru, Sept 30: Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) sleuths have arrested four people on charges of allegedly involving in procuring MDMA tablets through the ‘dark net’ and selling them to the student community in Udupi.

According to the NCB press note on Wednesday, the arrested were identified as K Pramodh – a consignee, Fahim – mastermind and their associates A Hashir and S S Shetty.

The NCB claimed that Fahim learnt the concept of purchasing drugs online (darknet) through a web series. “He started purchasing bitcoins and through it ordered drugs from the darknet. Fahim used to deliver consignments at various addresses in India and thereafter collect from there. He further sold the drugs to students of various colleges in Udupi."

The NCB further added that Fahim had mastered the art of procuring drugs through the dark web from the Netherlands.

Their consignment was seized in July 2020, but due to lack of consignee address, the NCB had to gather technical data to nab this syndicate.

The NCB had recovered an envelope containing 750 MDMA tablets ordered through the darknet from the foreign post office.

“Contraband was imported through a courier parcel from the Netherlands and payment was through bitcoins,” the note stated.

The note further elaborated that the detailed investigation in the case with the help of digital analysis led NCB team to the arrest of all the syndicate members including the consignee K Pramodh, mastermind Fahim and their associates A Hashir and S S Shetty.

Further investigations of the forward linkages are under progress.

The CCB has so far arrested high-profile party planner Viren Khanna, alleged drug peddlers Loum Pepper Samba, Rahul Tonse, Prashanth Ranka and Niyaz in connection with the case.

Other than the probe by the CCB, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is also conducting a parallel probe into the alleged money trail involved in this entire case involving two actors along with other co-accused on charges of money laundering.

The ED has already got permission from the First Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate on Thursday that had granted permission to probe the charges.

Among others, the ED is expected to question Viren Khanna, Sanjjana's friend and real estate businessman Rahul Tonse, and Ragini's associate B.K. Ravi Shankar who is among the arrested in connection with the same case.

Actor Ragini Dwivedi who had initially skipped summons by the CCB police on September 3 was arrested the next day for allegedly not cooperating with investigation officials, following raids at her residence. Sanjjanaa Galrani, who was also subsequently raided in connection with the same case, was arrested on September 8.
