HYDERABAD: The Task Force police arrested three persons possessing brown sugar, a narcotic, in the city on Tuesday and seized one kg of the drug worth `10 lakh from them.

The accused are: Mohammed Adil, a junior training officer at AIMS ITI at Bidar in Karnataka, Noushad Khan, a compounder in Rajasthan and Ghansyam Meena, also from Rajasthan.

Producing the accused before media, police commissioner AK Khan said the key accused, Mohammed Adil, took to drug peddling to support his lavish lifestyle.

He got the idea after seeing some students using drugs.

He gathered information about the places from where the drugs came from in other states and decided to procure them himself to make a fast buck.
