The Gandhinagar CID crime (narcotics cell) have arrested a man for allegedly selling mephedrone (MD) drug to college students in Vadodara city. The accused identified as Asgar alias Bobby Khan told the police that he was a film producer and spent a lot of time in Mumbai.

The police seized drugs worth Rs 23,000 from Khan along with his motorbike and mobile phone. "The drugs were of good quality. We asked him about the source from where he got these drugs but he evaded our questions. He seemed to be bringing the drugs from Mumbai," said police inspector Rajesh Kanamia, CID (crime).

The CID had received information about 45-year-old Khan on their helpline following which a trap was set for him.

"Investigations revealed that he used to sell drugs to university students. So, we sent in a student as a decoy customer and trapped Khan on March 30 on the outskirts of the city," Kanamia told sources. The police said that he must have been connected with the film industry but isn't a known name.

Khan used to get messages from the students who wanted drugs. He used to deliver the drugs personally and collect money. The Varnama police is now investigating if any other person is involved in the drug racket.
