The West Zone Task Force on Wednesday apprehended six persons for allegedly being in possession of 202 bottles of hash oil and 2 kg ganja.

Police identified the accused as Chakali Venkat Lingam (21), Daramsoth Yashwant (21), Aelliy Mahesh Babu (19), Neyyala Sai Kumar (23), Gadagamma Madhan Kumar (19), and Ch. Ganesh (18). Two others identified as Manoj and Praveen are absconding.

Police said that Venkat works as a daily financier operating in Borabanda area, while Yashwant works as a salesman in a sari shop. As both of them were facing financial hardship, they decided to make quick money and bought ganja and hash oil from Manoj and Mahesh. Venkat and Yashwant allegedly went to Paderu and bought the narcotics from them.

On Wednesday, Venkat and Yashwant reached the Nampally Railway station road. A short while later, Mahesh along with the others reached the spot. The accused were arrested and the narcotics were seized from their possession. They were then handed over to the Nampally police.
