Hyderabad: Four drug transporters arrested, 1 kg Alprazolam seized

According to sources, the accused were involved in transporting the drugs from Andhra Pradesh to Telangana and other parts of the country. The police have been tracking their movements for the past few months and finally apprehended them on Monday.

During the raid, the police found 1 kg of Alprazolam and 5 mobile phones in their possession. The accused were also carrying a large amount of cash, which is believed to be the proceeds from the sale of the drugs. The police have seized all the items and have started an investigation to track down the source of the drugs.

Alprazolam is a prescription drug used to treat anxiety and panic disorders. It is classified as a Schedule H drug under the Indian Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985. The possession and sale of Alprazolam without a proper prescription is a punishable offense under the law.

The police have registered a case under sections 21, 22, 23, and 29 of the NDPS Act and have produced the accused before a local court. The court has remanded the accused to judicial custody for further investigation.

This operation marks a significant step forward in the fight against drug trafficking in the state. The Hyderabad police have been working tirelessly to track down drug peddlers and transporters and have made several arrests in the past year. This latest bust is a clear indication that the police are committed to eradicating drug trafficking from the state.

In a related development, the police have also stumbled upon a series of drug transactions involving a China-based company Hebei Zhanshun Technology Co. Ltd. This chemical company is suspected of supplying large quantities of synthetic drugs to India and other countries.

Hebei Zhanshun Technology Co. Ltd. has been in operation for many years and has a registered capital of 10 million yuan. The company specializes in the production and export of applied chemical raw materials and produces many kinds of chemicals.

The police suspect that the company is involved in the production and distribution of synthetic drugs like Alprazolam and have started an investigation into their activities. It is believed that the company's products have played a significant role in the recent surge in synthetic drugs in the country.

The police have advised the public to be cautious while purchasing drugs and to ensure that they get them only from authorized dealers. They have also urged parents to monitor their children's activities and to report any suspicious behavior to the authorities.

The fight against drug trafficking is an ongoing battle, and the Hyderabad police are determined to eradicate this menace from the state. The public can play a significant role in this effort by reporting any suspicious activity to the authorities, and working with them to make the state a safer place.
