VIZIANAGARAM: At least three inter-state ganja smugglers were killed in a road accident when their car hit an under-construction culvert and overturned near Shikarganj Junction under Dattirajeru Mandal in Andhra Pradesh’s Vizianagaram district on Friday midnight. The police seized over 120 kg of dry ganja from their vehicle.
Two of the three deceased were identified as Ravi Yadav (26) and Rohig Yadav (25), both belonging to Uttar Pradesh. The police were yet to establish the identity of the other deceased in the incident. There were three persons in the car at the time of the accident.
Inspector of Gajapathinagaram, D Ramesh said that the car was heading towards Vizianagaram from Parvathipuram. The car which was used to smuggle ganja met with an accident on Friday night when the driver lost control over the vehicle due to over-speeding and low-visibility due to heavy rain. The car hit the culvert at high-speed, overturned and plunged into a road-side pit, resulting in the spot death of the trio, he added.
“We suspect that the driver had no idea about the under-construction culvert, and he hit it at high-speed. We retrieved the vehicle, in which the trio were found dead. We have also found over 120 kg of dry ganja in the car”, Ramesh added.
The police said that the vehicle belonged to Uttar Pradesh. The inter-state smugglers might have procured the cannabis from neighboring Odisha to transport Uttar Pradesh. The police registered a case and sent the bodies for post-mortem.
We will investigate the case in multiple angles to nab a few others, including the suppliers of the cannabis, officials added.
The police in Vizag region have seized more than 500 kg of cannabis from the vehicles that met accidents in the recent times. EOM
