Also, a known aid of Sumesh, Kerala-based Adhuu Shalbin is absconding, the police said.

Sumesh entered the procurement and distribution of synthetic drugs after realising that supplying ganja alone could not sustain his “lavish lifestyle,” the police added.

His plan of handing over the drugs to his contacts in Hyderabad was foiled by the police on Thursday as they caught him on Vanasthalipuram’s Panama X roads.
