“When we catch a person for selling drugs and narcotics, we might think his illegal activities are just limited to drugs. However, they might be involved in arms trade too. So, we send alerts to IB who connect the dots,” sources in the Excise department said. 

On Sunday, Excise department’s State Task Force caught an inter-State gang of two, who were trying to sell one kg opium and 56 gms Heroin in Hyderabad. The duo from Rajasthan bought narcotics from there, and planned to sell it in Hyderabad. STF officials said that the gang of two sold the drugs in other States too.
