HYDERABAD: The Bengaluru unit of the Narcotic Control Bureau (NCB) on Friday arrested three persons belonging to Hyderabad for their alleged involvement in the smuggling and sale of hydro ganja (cannabis grown on the surface of water bodies).

Officials said that the accused would acquire narcotics from West Bengal and supply it to customers via dark web. They traded in cryptocurrencies, police said.

Over the past two months, the NCB sleuths registered nine separate cases and arrested 27 offenders. A supplier, some financiers and distributors were also arrested besides the Hyderabad trio.
