According to the police, Hassan Shaikh and Chukwuemeka, decided to peddle drugs as income from their businesses seemed meager. As per their plan, they procured Mephedrone and other psychotropic substances from local dealers in Khargar, Taluja, and Vashi and sold them to customers, and made money.

With an intention to spread their drug business in Hyderabad as well, the duo came to the city recently and slowly started developing the customer base here.

Following a tip-off, the police first nabbed Hassan Shaik at Nampally and seized 40 grams of Mephedrone from him. Based on his confession, Chukwuemeka was arrested from Lakdi-ka-Pul, and 20 grams of Mephedrone were seized from him.
