KOCHI:The police on Saturday arrested four youths, including a suspected drug supplier, in connection with seizure of drugs at a rave party in the city the other day.
The arrested were Wasim, 28, Parapil, Kozhikode; Shabeeb, 26, Manakavu, Kozhikode; Janath, 25, Pokunnu, Kozhikode and Fawaz, 27, Kalayi, Kozhikode. They were taken into custody in Coimbatore on Friday late night, and were brought to Kochi on Saturday morning.
According to CI Siby Tom, who is investigating the case, the arrest of Wasim is a major lead to uncover the drug supplying rackets operating in the state and in Kochi.
“Wasim supplied the hashish and drug ampoules which were seized from the residence and car of Mithun C Vilas alias Kokaachi, a key accused in the case.
“After Mithun was arrested, the gang moved to Bengaluru, from where they went to Coimbatore when the police extended the probe to Bengaluru. However, the police team tracked the movements of the gang, and trapped them in Coimbatore,” added Siby Tom.
